    Question Urgent Help Needed

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have a discussion going on regarding the following scenario

    facility based chest xray done with an abnormal TB reading non tuberculosis but after it was done found hiatal hernia

    question is... since it is a facility do you bill reason test or final outcome?

    Default Answer!!

    You can bill of of Radiology and pathology as long as it is dictated by a physician. You can't bill off of Labs and EKG

    Reason it was done/ordered.

    I'd also include the incidental finding (as this is the most correct form of coding).
