We do not have professional billers at our organization. It is required that our providers have an understanding of the codes they are selecting to bill. With the new changes to the E/M coding we are wondering if we are selecting the E/M level based on Medical Decision Making can we bill both the E/M plus an add on psychotherapy code if the prescriber is providing psychotherapy during the session. Client is scheduled for 30min appointment the prescriber selects a 99214 based on MDD and provides 20 minutes of psychotherapy can they bill both 99214 and 90833? Can we bill a 99213 +90833 for a client who is seen for 40 min when selecting the E/M based on MDM? We appreciate any information that may be provided.
