Thread: Can you bill

    Default Can you bill

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can you bill a consult (99255), critical care (99291 and 99292), a central line (36556) and an intubation (31500) all on the day for Medicare? Which codes would I need modifiers for in order to get reimbursed?

    Default Medicare

    You cannot bill a consult code to Medicare under any circumstance any more.

    Critical Care time must be documented as EXCLUSIVE of any procedures for which you are also seeing payment.

    Don't forget your modifiers.
