    Default Concussion testing

    AAPC: Back to School
    Are any of your ortho's doing the concussion testing? codes 96116-96120? Are you getting reimbursed for this? Are you aware of any LCD's?

    Are you allowed to perform these tests on the field. Our docs cover the area high school football games............and I have "heard" some people are billing the place of service as the office , even though they actually performed the test at the game.

    Question Impact concussion testing


    Did you ever get an answer on the code to use for impact concussion testing?

    My provider is not having the patient perfrom the test here. The patient is completing the test at school and bringing in the print out. She is interpreting the results of the test.

    No...I had no responses.

    My docs have put this on the back burner

    If it comes up again I will tag this posting.
