“Ask the Coder” Answers CPT Questions

Have a tough coding question? Picking the right code level is often difficult due to a lack of familiarity with the rules governing inpatient consultations, subsequent hospital visits, prolonged services, and incident-to billing. “Ask the Coder” can help. If you have a question about evaluation and management (E&M) or current procedural terminology (CPT) service codes, simply fill out the form on the “Ask the Coder” portal, and your question will be sent to a certified professional coder for a response.

The answers provided through “Ask the Coder” are provided on an “as is” basis. Readers must use their own independent professional judgment in making coding decisions. The reader assumes all risks in using this information. The service is for IDSA members and their office staff.
