What code does a Nurse Practitioner use for a med evaluation?
The NP can use any of the codes the MDs use. For example the codes 90899-6, 90899-8 can be used. Of course the 90862 or the 90862-1 can also be used. There is really no difference between those two and so it is not necessary to use 90862-1 for an initial evaluation. 

The NP should use the MD ED. The 90862 is appropriate for the NP to use also.
