    CRNA billing - New Mexico

    I had to do some CRNA billing once for an ASC and from what I remember (been a few years) is it has to be physician supervised but beyond that the codes are the same and you used a special modifier to show it was physician supervised. Of course, the CRNA has to be licensed in NM.

    The AAO makes a great book. I believe it is called the coding coach or something like that.

    Did he have any type of vision loss because of the headache? If so, you can use sudden vision loss. If no vision loss, we have just used the V code and if it is denied the patient must pay.

    opening a medical billing company

    I just sent you an email. Let me know if you received it. I cannot imagine a scenario that any billing person would become obsolete. Even if the EHR generated a billing the doctors I work for are always making mistakes. It would take an Human thinking EHR to catch every type of scenario. If...

    New Cardiac Cath Coding - Examples

    If that's the case our reimbursement on the above example would be about 250.00 according to 2011 Medicare rates. That's why I assumed we would no longer have to worry about billing the prof comp. The allowable is about 750.00 on the global. Eric

    I would use 250.0x as the primary diagnosis for diabetic screenings if I was the Ophthalmology office. EDIT: 250.02 is what I would code it with.

    G0166-External Counterpulsation

    ^ No this should be paid for while at the office. This should not have been denied unless the criteria has not been met. I would appeal it with office notes to show no other course of action can be taken and ECP is the only treatment.

    Opthamology Heading

    I admit this sounds tricky but to me I would advise my physicians that we should not charge for the exam code for numerous reasons but the most important being why was the tube misplaced? Did you use a 66185 for revision on the return to the OR? If so I believe the exam code should be included...

    Opthamology Heading

    ^^^ In this scenerio I believe it would be included in the reimb. for the procedure thus an exam should not be charged. I do agree operating again on it would be a -78.
