    Question Billing Auto Insurance vs Private Insurance
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a couple of doctors (one in particular) that see patients for their MVA and then at the same visit decides to remove a lesion or two, of course, not related to the MVA. Does anyone know if I can bill the Auto insurance for the injuries from the accident and bill the private insurance for the lesion removal. I was told long ago that this was not possible but I thought I saw or heard somewhere that this was acceptable. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    It is acceptable to bill the auto ins for the injuries/conditions related directly to the MVA and the personal insurance for the procedure that was unrelated. This does however require two separate notes to be created, each note needs to be able to stand alone. This is the same with Workers Comp. We have advised our patients that if they come in for a WC visit and have an related problem they'd like to discuss then they must pay their co-pay or co-insurance before they leave the office.

    I agree with SCounterman 100%. The same applies in our office.
