Can we code education with 94799?


Education should not be coded as an unlisted procedure (94799) nor coded as revenue code 0942 (education/training), which is usually reserved for diabetic education, smoking cessation counseling, and partial hospitalization training services, but rather revenue codes 0410, 0412, or 0419 for respiratory services.

This question was answered in our Coding Essentials for RT/Pulmonary Function. For more hot topics relating to respiratory services, please visit our store or call us at 1.800.252.1578, ext. 2.
