cpt code for coumadin management
« on: November 12, 2008, 11:59:19 AM »
Is there a cpt code that medicare will pay for the management of coumadin therapy?  Patient not being seen in office just telephone contact/management. 99363 &99364  not on Medicare fee schedule.

Thank you for any help.

At this time there is not a specific CPT code for coumadin therapy that is covered by Medicare or most major insurers.  The 99363 & 99364 are not covered yet, but there are groups out there advocating to get them covered.

Thanks Jen,
