I found an Inpatient account that was billed to Medicare part A, and later a portion of it was billed to Medicare part B.
Is it appropriate to pull a Diagnosis to cover medical necessity for a Basic Metabolic Panel lab from a Chief Complaint that was documented in an X-ray report?
All this documentation is part of the same Account for the range of dates that the patient was in for treatment.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
