renal dialysis

    Default renal dialysis
    Medical Coding Books
    We have a physician that sees a dialysis patient in the clinic once a month for evaluation. However, the patient is receiving dialysis at a location in another city.
    Can he/her bill for the treatments being given as long as she evaluates them once a month. I think this would fall under the incident-to service but I'm not completely sure.

    No, he/she can not bill for the treatment (if it wasn't done it doesn't get coded)
