Prescription Refill Visits

Prescription Refill Visits

October 3, 2019

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?

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