NeuroPsych Coding 96118

Good afternoon Listers!!

Another question today.......

How would you code the following:
30 minutes Face to Face interview with the NeuroPsych
3 hours 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 and I know we cannot bill 96119 if those tests are included in the 96118 findings.

So I am thinking if the Neuro Psych has 31 minutes of face to face which is more than 50% we can bill 1 unit of 96118.

Please let me know your thoughts.
