    Default Has anyone ever seen this code?

    AAPC: Back to School
    My PA recently completed a note (copied below) and this code (DQ514P) popped up. Just wondering if anyone has ever seen this. I don't think I can bill for it, I don't even recognize it as a CPT or HCPCS code...but just thought I would check first....
