    Default billing for pre and post TEE's

    Promo: Code Books
    What is the documentation requirement for billing pre and post surgery TEE's for cardiology docs? Should there be 2 seperate reports for billing, or can both of these be combined on 1 report??????????
    Thanks!

    I don't think there is specific guidance other then there must be a written report. If the same Doc is interping both pre and post TEEs then he could put into one report. Might actually be a better report with both pre and post right there for comparison

    We use two notes. I'm not sure if it is required. I think that if you were to have it all in one note it would have to clearly distinuish the reasons, views and conclusions that where pre/post. In doing all that it may be just as easy to do two notes.
