Thread: H&P for "Request for Port-A-Cath Placement"

    Default H&P for "Request for Port-A-Cath Placement"

    AAPC: Back to School

    Can anyone tell me if it is acceptable for the Surgeon to charge for an office visit H&P the day before placement of port-a-cath. He performs ROS, Phys.exam, and gives impression/dx of "high stage cervical cancer." In the "Plan" he states "Porta-a-cath placement is requested." The next day this surgeon places a port-a-cath.

    Thank you for any ideas,
    Alisa, CPC
