Number of rolls per unit A4590

  1. Default Number of rolls per unit A4590
    Medical Coding Books
    I would like to have some help on how to code the number of rolls of fiberglass casting material are considered a unit when using A4590. We use different amounts as many as 6 rolls on longer cast. If you could give some direction, I would appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Tamie

    our clinic has a set fee for this, therefore we do not have to report units (this would be a nightmare to keep up with).

    We use the appropriate Q code at one unit.

    I should add that we also have a set fee for the Q code(s) based on a formula from our CFO.
