Respiratory Question for the Week of September 9, 2019

Respiratory Compliance Question of the Week


Can you tell me more about code G0239?


G0239 represents group situations where two or more patients are simultaneously receiving services such as those described above for G0237 and G0238. G0239 is not a timed code and should be reported only once a day for each patient in the group. Groups are limited to a ratio of not more than one (professional) to four (patients). G0239 should be billed only once per session per discipline.
