    There is no difference in the coding for in or out of network. You can PM me with questions if you like. I don't think my employer would appreciate me answering personal emails on company time. You should know that my coding experience for ASC's is limited to Pain Management.

    I bill for both in network and out of network facilties. In California, the reimbursements and billing is quite different for in network vs out of network. Of course, out of network are much higher. But in network reimbursements good but due to good contracting and carve outs.

    Can you explain what you mean by the billing is different for out of network vs. in network? I understand that payments are different for the two but I guess I need some explanation as far as how you bill differently?

    Thanks!

    I do billing and coding for oon and inn....for the inn we have carve out codes with some of the insurances so when we are billing and there is a carve out code we bill it only because we get reimbursed more.....now with the oon we will bill everything that is done but of coarse we will pend modifiers that are needed or if they are bundled codes then it wont get billed....
