I am coding for an ASC. My concern is about the NCCI edits. Basically, this is for Medicare only. If you are billing for other insurances like United Health, Blue Cross or Blue Shield, do you also follow this NCCI edits as a basis for guidelines? Example cpt code: 58662 and 58350, with the edits they are inclusive procedure as the 58350 is a "standard of medical/surgical practice" which is not sepearately claimable with Medicare. But with Blue Cross, these codes are getting paid separately. I need your advise please. What would you do in this type of circumstances.
Thanks very much for your input.
