An Internal Revenue Service (IRS) “moratorium” on a COVID relief program serves as a warning to providers who received tax credits, and it may speak to dangers beyond this specific program. Several other loan and grant opportunities, some of which stretch back to the early days of the pandemic, have requirements that you might have missed or not yet been asked for.
A proposed rule from HHS’ Office for Civil Rights (OCR) sets new standards for the accessibility of a variety of medical practice equipment to the disabled and may leave non-compliant practices vulnerable to fines and even lawsuits.
Question: We had a provider perform an excision of prepatellar bursa (27340) in the office, place of service (POS) code 11. Patient has United Healthcare Shared Services-GEHA insurance. They denied the claim stating that CPT 27340 is not billable with POS 11. I have never had this issue before. Are there any coding rules/guidelines that prohibit use of some CPT codes at certain places of service or is this some weird payer-specific rule?
Review the most common types of external diagnostic cardiology tests, examine relevant CPT coding guidelines, and offer reporting advice from expert sources to ensure your billing patterns are capturing the right services.
