    AAPC: Back to School
    I must have missed this 2 years ago so sorry! It looks like your system is geared to physician E&M and not facility. A facility can charge for every patient encounter, and if not done on the same day as chemo admin then it is not bundled. I can look to see if I still have this but it is a tool the entire facility used not just the chemo unit.

    You didn't miss this.. I just posted it LOL.. We are facility and use an acuity sheet but teaching was not reflective on it.

    Ok, I thought I was losing it! I will need to see if I have a copy of that portion of the tool we used. Like I said we had a generic tool used by all departments, it had a section on it for chemo teaching, I will see if I have that and if not if I can reconstruct it. However I am going on a vacation trip to the river which my electronic gizmos are not welcome at! So it will take me a bit.

    I was told that "teaching" is incorporated in the adminsitration and it doesn't matter when the chemo was performed if it was performed on a different day than the teaching. I still think we should be able to charge for the hosptial resource that we used.

    We routinely don't provide teaching because the physician office does it and I would think that is emcompassed in their E/M level. But when we do it, we can't charge for it??

    Where did you find this information? I can't find anything on CMS.
