Is overnight oximetry billable?

In some circumstances, the test may be billable under the following CPT Code:

CPT Code

Non-invasive ear or pulse oximetry for oxygen saturation by continuous over night monitoring (separate procedure)

What if I cannot bill under CPT code 94762? 

Sometimes oximetry screening may be covered under the office visit. If a physician spends additional time with a patient reviewing screening options or results from a screening test, it is up to his/her discretion to determine if a higher level Evaluation and Management code is applicable.
