Prescription Refill Visits

Prescription Refill Visits

October 3, 2019

Question:
We get calls from patients to renew their medications. When the patient comes to office to pick up prescription, can we bill for a nurse visit with 99211?

Answer:
No. CPT makes it very clear that picking up a prescription does not constitute a billable E/M service.
