Thread: Phototherapy billing

  1. #1

    Default Phototherapy billing

    AAPC: Back to School
    We are trying to set up 96910 - phototherapy, for our provider-based derm practice. Can anyone tell me if this code should be billed on a UB or 1500 or split? Also, what rev codes are you using with this code?

    Our office used a PUVA light so we billed 96912 on a CMS-1500 form. If the clinic owns the equipment, I would suggest billing on a CMS-1500 only.

    We are also a provider based derm practice. For 96910-photochemotherapy, this code should be billed on a 1500.

    What if it is a facility that is providing the service and the services are billed on a UB04? What Rev codes are appropriate?
