Question: I see there are new CPT codes for phone calls. I never got paid for the old codes. Should I even bother billing these?

Answer: Sure. Word on the street is that some commercial payers are indeed paying for them. Moreover, if you never bill, the payers have an excuse to never pay. After all, “no one bills them anyway.”
