For the Week of September 21, 2020
May we report code 0482T (absolute quantification) along with the new cardiac positron emission tomography (PET) codes in 2020?
Can we perform repeat organ and disease-oriented panel procedures on a single day of service?
Can we use hydration codes to report drug infusion?
What are the anticipated changes to percutaneous core needle lung biopsy?
Do you have any advice for billing oximetry trend studies?
A progress note from our nurse practitioner (NP) indicated that she was called by nursing to see a patient due to “unequal pupils.” The NP ordered a CT/CTA to rule out associated dissection or blood clot post angiogram earlier today. Would it be correct to assign a diagnosis code for unequal pupils as primary?
