CT without contrast/with contrast

  1. #1
    Default CT without contrast/with contrast
    Medical Coding Books

    A long time ago I read where Medicare said if you do a ct with and without contrast at separate encounters within a 24 hour period, you must combine them and bill the with and without code.

    I cannot locate that instruction.. Anyone aware of it? We had a CT LCD but it was retired a while ago and now it's not on the website (NGS).

    Without knowing the details....thought this might help.

    Try this link, regarding CMS multiple imaging composite APCs.

    Good Luck...
