re: 99204

99204 is used for an office or other outpatient visit. If you look at the sections they are under, this will help you understand which code set to use.

For example,
99201-99215, Office or other Outpatient Services
99221-99239. Hospital Inpatient Services
90782-90899 Psychiatry

In addition, depending on the type of billing you are doing, there is also Rehabilitative Services H0001-H2036 Alcohol and Drug or H0031-H2037 for Behavioral services.
