    Default Radiology Billing

    AAPC: Back to School
    my question is if a patient comes in on Decemder 1st for an x-ray but the radiologist does not read the x-ray until December 5th, what would the date of service be that we bill for the 1st or the 5th. We bill for the professional component.

    Thank You,

    I do recall reading somewhere that you should bill the date of the interpretation.

    Default dos issue

    If an xray was done on dec 1, that is the date of service. It doesn't matter when the xray was read.
