Thread: office visit at facility

  1. #1

    Default office visit at facility

    AAPC: Back to School
    If we bill for our surgeon to see a patient at a hospital facility with 99212 for our visit. Does it seem a bit much for the facility charge to be in excess of $300.00 to $400.00 for the facility fee?

    Please just let me know.

    Given the rules for facility E&M in that they do not have to match the physicians level and can have their own criteria then no it is not unusual.

    Thank you for your response. I am just not that familiar with the hospital side of things and this helps me clear that up.
