we have a construction contractor wanting to send his employees to us for their respirator evaulations ( mask fit test).

What CPT code should be used?

There is no CPT code for respirator mask fit tests.

Where the electronic medical record and/or billing service requires a billing code for every encounter, you'll need to create faux-codes (with associated real prices) for services like this. For example, assign to the service 99080 "Special reports such as insurance forms, more than the information conveyed in the usual medical communication or standard reporting form," associated with your usual fee for mask fit tests.
