    With the new EHRs, how do I code email traffic between the patient and the doctor?

    No code for this. No bill. No payment.

    Hope that helps.

    There is the 99444 for email as long as you follow the parameters set out in the code descriptor and capture the email and the sent response from the provider as a part of the patient's medical record do not keep it in the e-mail or correspondence folder. Many payers do pay for this and average is $35
