I am just curious to see how other practices do their billing. We have two coders in our office, but we are not actually in with the physicians offices. We do the billing for a multispeciality group. They send over their fee tickets and we are to review them before we send them out to a billing company. We have some physicians who are on EMR and we have access to that.
Let's say a fee ticket comes over with no office level circled. Are we to just go on EMR and select the office level ourselves or send it back to the physician to indicate that?
Or we have mulitple CPT codes circled and according to EMR these things weren't done. For instance, Fee ticket has 99396 and 99211 circled. The cheif complaint is follow up evauation of a biopsy. No dication of a pap or anything else of that matter. I would think this would be just a 99211 depending on the what procedure was billed for the biopsy. It could just be a post op visit. This is a constant issue with this doctor. The fee tickets do not match the EMR. One came over with 99203,99386 and no well woman exam was indicated on EMR but it says he did an I&D but just wrote that next to the dx. How would you handle this?
I am just curious to see if anybody else has major issues like this with their physicians.
