I was asked this question by the people to do our ASC facility billing and I am a bit confused by it. When multiple endoscopies are performed, how are the subsequent procedures priced? For example, 45385 with 45380 and 45381. All have the same base code with a multiple procedure status indicator of 3. Should the second and third procedure be half-priced? It's the status indicator 3 that is throwing me. The information I found states that with that indicator, we should be paid for the cost of the base code plus the difference between the base code and code actually performed. I'm not sure if this pricing rule even applies to the facility side. Help?! Thanks.
