Question:

When more than one inhalation treatment is provided to a patient, can we report CPT code 94640 (pressurized or non-pressurized inhalation treatment for acute airway obstruction…) more than once?

Answer:

This code should be reported only once during an episode of care regardless of the number of separate inhalation treatments administered, according to the 2017 National Correct Coding Initiative Manual.
