Pharmacy Question for the Week of August 6, 2018

Posted Posted in Pharmacy, Question of the Week

Question:

We have a Coumadin clinic at our facility. The patients are seen by a Coumadin nurse who does a full assessment on the patient she sees every month. During the assessment she also does a PT/INR check on the patient. Is it appropriate to bill the evaluation and management (E & M) level G0463 and the PT/INR check 85610. We have been struggling with this issue for a while and would like some clarifications as soon as possible.
