Thread: Travel Clinic Coding Question

    Default Travel Clinic Coding Question

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good Day All~

    I am inquiring about what codes are most commonly used when clinics bill for Travel Clinic visits (wether it be within a infectious disease department or standing alone as it's own department).
    Not the vaccine and administration codes but the 'counseling' E&M visit that is most commonly used throughout the clinics.
    Would the 99201-99215 (new or established) codes be more appropriate or the 99401-99412 counseling risk reduction (individual or group) be the most appropriate?
    Knowing that time is a huge factor with the counseling part and must be documented accordingly.

    Thank you for any insite that anyone has.

    Default Travel Clinic - POS

    Good Morning,

    We are starting a Travel clinic. The clinic will be housed in part of our Urgent Care Facility.

    What is the correct POS? 20 or 11?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, tonya
