    Exam Training Packages
    APRN providing the below services in Integrative Pain Management for Pediatrics

    In addition to usual new patient and follow up E/M services the APRN is seeing patients in one hour time blocks for the following:
    1. One hour individualized yogo instruction for chronic pain (APRN is credentialed for this) - will usually be a series of at least 6 weekly visits.
    2. One hour self-hypnosis training for chronic pain - usually a series of 3-6 visits over a few weeks.
    3. One hour chronic pain educatin/lifestyle coaching, including instruction in meeting dietary goals, improving sleep hygiene, medication regimen, physical activity regimen, etc..

    These visits will be separate from the E/M visits which includes medication review, physical exam, etc....

    Any help with how to code for these services would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

    I would look at codes in the 99401-99404 range and also look at 98960. I suspect most of these will not be covered by insurance carriers so definitely check benefits!
