from what I've seen there aren't many similarities at all. ER Docs usually use CPT codes, while the ambulance companies/crews bill with HCPCS. also, unlike ER Docs, the ambulance folks can bill for the supplies they use (backboard, C-collar), as well as oxygen administration, and mileage. usually the most the physician can get is the E/M, and professional components of diagnostics, but they have to be the one to actually write the report for the x-ray, EKG, or whatever else they wanna bill for. did someone tell you that they're similar? just curious cause I've never seen any similarities.
