70030- I work for


Best answers
Hello, I work for a billing company and we are having a dispute on how to bill orbits that are checking for metals. Does anyone know how we bill this out the correct way. I code it 70030 with V82.89. The hospital wants use to bill it 70030 with the reason for the mri(ex: shoulder pain) and a V72.0. The problem is it is not dict on the report way they are having the mri. Can we bill for the orders of the ref doctor? Thanks in advance!
