Know the Code – MT001
Unique for Montana code, MT001 has been part of the Montana Professional Fee Schedule since 2008. It is a 15 minute per unit code with a current RVU of .54. Time must be documented in the note to support the number of units billed for the services incorporated in the code:
- face to face conferences with payer representative(s) to update the status of a patient upon request of the payer;
- a report associated with non-physician conferences required by the payer; or
- Completion of a job description or job analysis requested by the payer.
- Written questions that require a written response from the provider, excluding the Medical Status Form.
Do not use 99080 for any of these services as they will be denied for incorrect code.
