Stem Cell Transplant Coding

    Need help The facility I work for is a freestanding clinic and we perform stem cell transplants on an outpt basis, however I am having a hard time getting these charges paid by the payers. If anyone has any knowledge of this type of coding please send words of wisdom my way. I think the payers just don't think it is possible that we perform these services on an outpt basis, but each pt has a prior authorization before going forward with the transplant. Not sure what else to I said any help would be appreciated.

    Default You are in the wrong forum
    I'm sorry I can't help answer your question ... but you have posted in the wrong forum. This forum is for AUDITING.

    I think you'll get a better response if you post in HEMATOLOGY/ONCOLOGY forum ... or even the GENERAL DISCUSSION (Medical coding) forum.

    Good luck
