Does anyone know if when a procedures gets canceled at an ASC if we can charge anything? This patient came in had her vital taken but was sent home for her abnormal EKG. I also have another case that the vitals were done and also IV fluid.

Thanks,
Jenny

Hi Jenny-

I also work for an ASC. For a patient that was cancelled and NO IV administered-we dont bill, but if and IV was administered we do bill with a modifer and send the appropriate documentation to the insurance company.

Hope this helps-

its my understanding that you can only charge if the patient enters the OR suite. I will see if I can find the documentation to support this for you.
