Hello Family Practice Offices:
1) Billing for 99211 and have a nurse that monitors the protime results (INR) and / or have the patients come in to discuss the results with her (i.e., a Coumadin clinic)?
2) Providers having the patients come in every so often to discuss and review results, with the patients?
3) Only calling the patients and giving them the results and medication adjustments over the phone?
We have approx. 30 patients we are monitoring protime for and are trying to figure out the best way to track & maintain them. Your feedback would be appreciated.
Melinda Brown, CMBS
