Thread: Fetal Anomaly

    Default Fetal Anomaly

    AAPC: Back to School
    We perform abortion services for patient's with fetal anomalys. I understand when the patients are over 20 weeks, we can bill for a delivery 59409; but I have been unable to locate the ASC rate on BCBS of Tx website.

    Can I bill for 59409 in an ASC? or is that only for the hospital ?

    Thank you in advance.

    59409 is a surgical procedure not on ASC allowable list....to see a list what is allowed in ASC go to http://www.ascassociation.org/ then click on the Medicare tab

    Thanks, Jamie...that's what I thought because BCBS did not have an allowable for it under their ASC fee schedule.
