That's a good question, I'm curious to know how others would handle this situation. I believe I have billed for this circumstance before but I am unsure if it paid or not. The one I can recall the patient had a congenital anomaly in the radial/brachial area and that is why access was terminated and access gained in the femoral. I don't see it happen very often though.
