    Default Bill the date of test or interpretation?

    AAPC: Back to School
    My co-workers and myself have asked ourself this question multiple times and I need a direct answer or resource to find the answer. When a physician is doing an interpretation, do we charge for the date of the interpretation or do we charge for the actual date the test was done?

    Thank you!
