    Thank you so much Meagan! I scoured the forum and never found that thread for some reason. We do several PA assists a week in our practice and this info will save the day!
    Thanks again!

    No problem, happy to help!! All of our surgeons use PA's; I'm just waiting for Pinnacle to jump on board with this like others have so far and complicate things that much more!

    Yes...we just heard this for the very first time today! We are questioning how this is applied/interpreted. The only other information we can locate has to do with Method II CAH's and PA's reassigning their billing rights to the hospital. Our hospital is not a CAH, nor have the PA's reassigned their billing rights. This has caused a lot of conversation and attempted research to say the least! If anyone has more information, please share!

    Just an update that two of the surgeries where both a PA and a surgeon assisted and were coded were paid by the insurance. Just a reminder that you can't believe everything people tell you here and sometimes you need to just keeping fighting to get your physicians paid!
