    Default Coding in RVU order

    AAPC: Back to School
    When multiple procedures are done at the same time (for Radiology) i.e., 74160,71260 and 72193 - is it best to code in the order of highest RVU to lowest or does it not matter?

    Thank you!

    Default RVU coding

    I was taught to always put the highest RVU first.

    I agree with Karen, I was also taught to bill from highest to lowest RVU
