Title: Recurring or Series Billing Bill Types
Post by: jc071172 on July 17, 2012, 08:17:14 AM
I am doing some analysis on our billing, and I noticed the majority of our recurring or series bills are going out as 131 Bill Types. According to Medicare, an Initial Interim Bill Type is a 132, a subsequent Interim Bill Type is a 133, and the last Interim Bill Type is a 134. Shouldn't these be getting used and not just 131, even though these recurring consist of primarily outpatient therapy? Thanks.

If you are always billing for admit thru discharge then 131 is ok.
