I work for a group of Urologist. 51798 is not on the Workmans comp fee schedule and I cannot find an alternative code to cover service.
Can we legally bill the patient for non-covered cpt codes/services ? Can you attach a link that explains rules for billing workmans comp and supports the answer given ? My office has been adjusting the charges stating it is illegal to bill the patient for non covered service . I don't believe this is true, especially since we do not have a contract with workers comp.
