    Question asc supply billing

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am completely lost I have been given a surgery center account to bill for the supplies. I've called the ins co and they have said it would be okay to send the super bills and reports with a cms 1500 my question is would it be okay to bundle all the amounts and use code 99070 along with J codes for drugs that are listed? I'm flying blind with no cert coder on site so if anyone knows how to bill correctly I would be thankful for any feed back. Happy friday/coding to all LQ

    What state are you in? Alot of states have a fee schedule for workers compensation. I am in Illinois. When billing the procedure all supplies are inclusive with the exception of "pass through" codes such as implants. These are paid at a rate of 65% off billed charges. Other states pay a percent off of invoice for implants. However, most ASC's bill showing all supplies included in procedure. Try looking up your workers compensation for your state under goverment. Hope this helps and didn't add to your confusion!

    If you do bill using a cms1500 you will want to make sure and put 24 in the place of service and throw on the SG modifier to alert the payer you are billing facility fees and not the procedure. Otherwise they may not know and pay you per cpt and not facility.
