Thread: Mobile x-ray billing for same dos

    Question Mobile x-ray billing for same dos

    AAPC: Back to School
    I need help! I work for a billing company in Illinois and we have a client in California that does mobile x-ray's for skilled nursing facilities. Most of the patient's have Medicare as their insurance. I need to know how to bill for a return to the skilled nursing facility and get paid for the transportation (R0070) and set-up (Q0092) and x-ray when it's the same date of service. Thanks, any help is greatly appriciated!

    Can you check with the Medicare intermediary? There may be something in writing there that will describe it. If I could not get an answer that way, I would submit it all on the same claim form and see what happens. Sometimes it is easier to do it the right way when you have a denial, quoting documentation supporting the denial. Then I can go to that documentation and find the right way. I hope this helps

    Default Mobile US place of service

    We go to a clinic that is not affiliated with my providers and that we don't lease a space and bring our US machine. We perform the US and interpret it. What would be the place of service? I am being told our clinic location since they bring the US machine back and do the intrepation there but I am not sure since the face to face was done at someone elses clinic.
