    Default 55700

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is 55700 an ASC procedure code? What is the group and the rate if it is? I can't find this information on Palmetto or CMS website. It has a surgery fee only. Our provider is billing it with 131 TOB and 360 REVENUE code.

    Thanks for all your help with this.

    Well, according to our Medicare ASC rate calculator for the City I am in , CPT code 55700 pays $462.71. Not totally sure about the rev code as we don't do these procedures at our ASC but I googled what rev code would be used with 55700 and 360 seems to be the one? Anyone else have suggestions?

    Happy coding!

    I believe the revenue code for an ASC is 490.
