I, too, am fairly new to the ASC billing process. Actually, I have been in the medical billing business for 30 years - but, never worked with ASC; my present position - I don't really do any billing - but, I play a more administrative role in the ASC .. however, with my insurance industry background - I'm questioning whether the ASC billing is being done correctly. Here are my questions:
1. what type of services are considered to be inclusive of the facility fee? the people who do our billing breakout the fluorscopy and sedation charges .. my insurance head thinks this is wrong ... but, I'm not sure
2. does anyone know how to get training on correct ASC billing procedures? Someone had previously directed me to some on-line Medicare information - but, I'm looking for the actual training or study materials in order to take the exam in May
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Have a happy weekend, all!
