Thread: How Would I Bill This?

    Question How Would I Bill This?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Put This out Under Dermatology on Friday, got a lot of looks but no response. So I will now try the under side, Plastic SX. Here is my question:
    DR. #1 is a Derm./MOHS SX and he is going to remove the lesion by performing the MOHS SX.
    He will be billing a CPT 99243 along with 17311.

    DR. #2 is a Plastic SX and he is going to come behind an do the Complex Repair
    He will bill CPT 13132.

    Here is the question:

    They are both in the same group practice and bill under the same tax ID#. They have their own NPI#'s. How would I bill this claim?
    All under one doctor and let them deal with the money on the back end?
    Do I bill on two seperate claims under each NPI#?

    Any help would be much appreicated!

    I guess I would bill each separately, not sure why you would not with separate NPI's. For the plastic surgeons part I would use the V10.83 and not the lesion code. There are specialists out there in this group that will weight in too!!

    Since they are different specialties you shouldn't have a problem billing separate claims.
