Covered services do not include Radiology, Pathology, Anesthesia, drugs, and certain DME. These are billed in addition and require other technical and professional components that will be billed in addition.
The Emergency Room E/M codes describe the Physician's time/effort and the resources used for treatment. Consider 94625- 94664 for Inhalation treatment.
