Anoscopy charges

  1. Default Anoscopy charges
    Medical Coding Books
    My provider charges $50 more for a basic diagnostic anoscopy (46600) than for a surgical anoscopy (46615). This makes no sense to me on any level.

    Is there a reasonable explanation for this, or is it something I can credibly challenge?

    Default Check the RVUs
    Check the RVUs on the two procedures.

    Work RVUs alone are 0.55 for 46600 /// 1.5 for 46615

    Hope that helps.
