Submitting CPT Code 99211 with Testing Services
Question: Is it appropriate to bill 99211 when a patient comes in for a visual field by the technician?
Answer: CPT code 99211 is bundled with all testing services. It should only be billed when there is a written order detailing and delegating which elements of the exam are medically necessary to perform. It cannot be a standing order.
The physician must be on site and needs to sign the chart note as the exam is submitted under their name/NPI.
