Can anyone help me with the same type of question?

Can a facility bill AND get reimbursed for saline (250cc or 500cc) when it is used as protocol? Many times the docs order it, it's hung by the nurse and never used.
1. Is this billable
2. Does anyone get reimbursed by commercial payors? I know medicare pays a small fraction.

Thank you for your help!


:D

I have never billed for it when it is not used. I have however been reimbursed from Blue Cross when we did use it and billed it out to them.
