What code or codes would I use to report intermittent measurement of wheeze rate for bronchodilator? I hear I can no longer use 0243T. Is this true?
Yes, this code can no longer be reported in this scenario. Intermittent measurement of wheeze rate for bronchodilator or bronchial challenge diagnostic evaluation, formerly assigned to codes 0243T and 0244T, which were deleted in 2016, may be reported with 94799.
