Thread: multipe surgery payment reduction rule

  1. #1

    Default multipe surgery payment reduction rule

    AAPC: Back to School
    I cannot find this guideline with CMS. Can anyone direct me to the right place? I've got a Cath 93510 and a Renal Angio 36245 that was billed on the same day and they paid the Renal with a 25% reduction. I know the rule exists, I just can't find it in writting and lately I need things in writting just to get people to believe me. I tried multiple surgery rule and 'same family' rule and I can't find it.

    See if this is what you're looking for...


    Section 40.6

    thank you so much. And it had nothing to do with the Multiple Procedure thing. It was the Bilateral rule that I should have been looking at!!
