Nurse Visit Code for SLIT

Home / Coding Coach / Nurse Visit Code for SLIT

October 4, 2018

Question:
What do you think about a practice charging a nurse visit (99211) when a patient comes in for SLIT?

Answer:
What is the nurse doing separately to support 99211?  If the intent of the services is to provide the vial of sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) and instruct the patient how to take the medication, then no.  CPT is very clear that picking up a prescription does not substantiate 99211.
