Our billing service does not bill surgeries without the operative to cya from a financial stand point (don't want to miss codes or miscode) and from a liability stand point. We have a physician trying to insist that we code based off a very abbreviated description of the services that he sends us in emails in order to get his billing out faster. He is not consistent with dictating his operatives so I am concerned this will put us in a bad position legally if we were audited.
Is there some documentation we can use to convince the physician that billing without the dictated operative is not smart or legal? I have to have something to back up what we tell him when we reject his request....please help!
