Use of CPT codes for facility fees
« on: May 25, 2011, 03:50:15 AM »
2 billing statements - same doctor - LT Clavicle surgery - charge approx $19,300k - Receive identical codes on billing for surgery center for $ 19, 800 - no use of revenue codes at all and I'm told its facility fees.  Can a biller use CPT codes for facility fees?  How does a patient know what they are paying for re facility fees if the charge is coded as a medical procedure? I.E. - CPT codes?

Confused......comments welcome...An APC code was also used and the patient receives no federal benefits, medicare, etc.  Help please... thanks in advance!

Facility fees are billed using rev codes on a UB04 form. Surgerical fees are billed with CPT codes on CMS forms.

Some insurance carriers require ASC claims on a CMS-1500 form, others require ASC claims on a UB-04 form.  And yet other carriers will accept ASC claims on either form. 

We do quite a bit of explaining over the phone when a patient calls and asks why they were billed for a 59400 plus a 59400-SG.
