Respiratory Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

Can you tell me more about code G0239?

Answer:

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.
