Bronchodilator Treatment Included in CPT 94060


Question

Should cpt code 94640 be billed with 94060, or is this considered part of the procedure?

Answer

The administration of the bronchodilator is included in CPT code 94060 (Bronchodilation responsiveness, spirometry as in 94010, pre- and post-bronchodilator administration). The service cannot be performed without the bronchodilator, therefore, it is integral to the procedure and cannot be charged separately with 94640.
