    Default bone marrow aspiration

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our physician attempted a Bone Marrow Aspiration 38220, but a sample could not be obtained. Can you still charge for this since nothing was collected?

    Yes, a completed procedure can be billed even if the expected result is not achieved.
