Thread: Billing Cardiolite

  1. #1

    Default Billing Cardiolite

    AAPC: Back to School
    Physician billed A9500 with 1-unit. The 1-unit was paid, but we should have billed 2-units. How should I bill for 2nd unit (same day of service) without claim denying as duplicate? Thanks for any help

    might want to try billing with "corrected claim" mentioned in box 19 & increasing the units to 2

    That's right , at most of the cases, the technologist use 2 dosis of cardiolite
    You have two indicate in your program two units, or in yor 1500 (units position)

    I'm pretty sure you can only bill what you pay for them.

    A9500 - depends how many dose is given.
    A9505 - 4 units for every 3.5mCi given
    J0152 - Depends how many mgs given (1 unit for every 30mg) so if 52 mg is given bill 2 units
    J2785 - 4 units
    the rest I am not sure as we do not use this in the office.
