    Default Itemized charges

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone in ASC's line itemize charges (use a charge master)? Please let me know, i am curious on how other ASC centers bill for all the supplies they use daily.

    Facility fees are most common. Its more cost effective than spending the time to itemize as most contracts have a set fee per the old grouper catagories and dont recognize itemized charges.

    I guess our ASC tried itemized billing for some reason before I came here and it was a mess, so now we bill per CPT code and groupers and our revenue is coming in at a much better rate.

    Hope this assisted you!
