    Question ER Facility Codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    First off, ER facility coding is not my specialty...
    I'm trying to understand some facility codes I'm working with. Instead of the 5 digit CPT codes, these are 7 digit codes. Example: 4000215 with the description of 'ED Level IV', and 2000265 for Head CT Scan w/o Contrast.

    Can anyone explain this? Do facilities use different codes than CPT?

    Thank you for any input!

    Good Morning.
    It looks like those are charge master codes for the facility charging.

    Those are your facility chargemaster codes which will select the appropriate PT ode for the claim... In most facilities, codes outside the 10000-69999 range are chargemaster driven codes, the 10000-6999 are coder driven codes.
