For the Week of October 15, 2018
I have a provider who saw a patient with an E/M but also did an isuprel challenge, 93623. Since that is an add-on code, is there anything we can bill for this service? Should I use an unlisted code?
When submitting an electronic claim for testing, is it the performing lab’s CLIA number included or the referral lab?
Are there any Medicare guidelines for using an electronic signature when ordering medications?
We received an order for a computed tomography (CT) of the right ankle without contrast material and a CT of the right foot w/o on the same patient. Can we charge for both procedures separately if we separately scan each part? I know they both use the same CPT® code 73700 (CT, lower extremity; without contrast material). If we were to scan the entire region (toes to mid leg) in one scan I assume in that case we would only charge 73700 one time.
What codes would be assigned for a six-minute walk test?
