Billing for pulse ox interp 94760 in the urgent care setting

  1. Default Billing for pulse ox interp 94760 in the urgent care setting
    Medical Coding Books
    Looking for any reference / articles /information regarding guidelines for billing pulse ox interpretations for urgent care clinic. Does the doctor have to order it ? Most doctors say it is a 5th vital sign and don't understand if/why an order is needed. Would it be considered bundled with the E/M level even when the urgent care center is owned by the practice?

    Any insight / information would be helpful.

    thank you

    I need some information on that code as well. I have been doing some research and I know it is unbundled from Critical care and conscious sedation. So far that is all I can find, we have a doc who wants to bill it during knee injection 20610.
