Is there a code to report when a respiratory therapist provides instruction on how to use incentive spirometry in a physician’s office?
Code 94014 includes reference to reinforced education but the intent of the code is specific to patient-initiated spirometric recording per 30-day period. Education for use of a peak flow meter or incentive spirometer would not meet the requirement of the code. Patient-initiated spirometric recording per 30-day period of time; includes reinforced education, the transmission of spirometric tracing, data capture, analysis of transmitted data, periodic recalibration, and review and interpretation by a physician or other qualified health care professional. 94664 addresses demonstration and evaluation of device but does not list peak flow meter or incentive spirometer as one of the covered devices.
