HCPCS 99211-99215 & Unlisted Code 99 Procedures: Para-Hosted Research?

according to the 2010 numbers only 4.6% of the under 65 medicare recipient population recieved psychiatric treatment, codes 99211-99215, which now use G0463, rendering a fee of $212 for an E&M diagnostic visit for a psychiatrist, fairly standard. what is interesting about these medicare coding procedures is that lucrative research awards and outright medical bribery are code 99 for which medicare does not reimburse any payment for, i am currently seeking documentation of this 4.6% segment of the medicare recipient population to rank on 99 codes for research value
