Thank you for alerting us to the new CPT code 99072 during the last Business Impact Webinar.
I found this description online for those who would like it:
:●99072 Additional supplies, materials, and clinical staff time over and above
those usually included in an office visit or other non-facility service(s), when performed during a Public Health Emergency as defined by law, due to respiratory-transmitted infectious disease
We started using that code on all visits today- I am wondering if we should be using the modifier -59 or some other modifier? We sent half out with the 59 modifier, half without- and will see what happens. I’d love to hear what others think- especially our super-coders out there.
