96118 NeuroPsych

Good afternoon Listers!!

How would you code the following:
30 minutes Face to Face interview with the NeuroPsych
3 hours face to face with the technician in testing
3 hours interp by doc which is not face to face

I don't believe the tech time face to face counts in billing the 96118 but I'm just not certain. I do know we cannot bill 96119 if those tests are included in the 96118 findings. And in billing units we must have more than half the time as face to face but where I am cloudy is does the tech time count when billing 96118 which specifically says physician face to face.

Please let me know your thoughts.
Thank you!
