DOS for EEG Interpretation

If a physician reads an EEG that was done on a inpatient, but he does the read on a different DOS than when the test was performed, what DOS should he use for his interpretation? I'm getting conflicting information and could use some clarification.

Does anyone know if Medicare has guidelines for billing the interpretation of EEG's?

Yes, medicare does have guidelines regarding this. The quick answer is the interpretation, regardless of when it is done, is billed for the same date of service as the technical portion.

Hi Sandy - Can you direct me to the Medicare Guidelines on the interpertation of the EEG? We are in disagreement on the read dates. (not with you, within our office)
