I am hopeful what I want is somewhere in writing but I have not been able to locate it as yet this morning. Does anyone have the documentation guidelines/requirements for billing a PA assisting in surgery?

Thanks in advance

I am looking for guidelines on what has to be documented in the op note to support billing for the assist.

Thanks

Ahhh...gotcha.

Great article in the Coding Edge January 2008...page 38. We follow these recommendations and have had little/no grief from the carriers when they request our op notes.

Thank you very much! That is exactly what I needed. I like the incident to article after it as well.

Again thanks
