Billing for medication refills Unless your practice provides a medically necessary evaluation and management (E/M) service in addition to the medication refill, you should not use code 99211. Refills alone are not separately reportable services.
Physicians can report 99211, but it is intended to report services rendered by other individuals in the practice, such as nursing staff, medical assistants, or technicians, who must document the visit just as a provider would. Common examples include hypertension or wound checks by a nurse or medical assistant.
