Billing / Re: Inpatient rehab billing

Inpatient billing is completely different than professional billing.  There are a lot of different fields on the UB04.  I'm not sure where to start.  Too much info to put into a post.  The biggest tips I can give our the Type of Bill is important and there are rev codes instead of CPT codes.  Hopefully since your software is capable of the inpatient billing, it will guide you thru the steps.

Are you familiar with the UB04 at all?  Maybe as you start going through it you will have more specific questions.  I really don't mind helping at all, just not sure what to tell you in this first "introductory" post.   ;D

Hello,
Thank you for your reply. I am not familiar with inpatient rehab billing. I have experience with Outpatient Physical Therapy Billing and podiatry. So, any information will be much appreciated. My software can handle inpatient billing but I have never done it.
Thanks!

An MA - medical assistant - is an employee, either of the provider or the group if it is a group practice.  Employees get paid out of the income that the provider or group generates.  There is no special billing consideration involved when the employee does the work that the provider or group is paying them to do.

"Incident to" billing can only be done by a mid-level provider and up. An MA does not qualify.

Also, what the MA is doing is normal operating procedure in most offices that have MA's, and taking an H&P and making notes is part of whatever E/M code is billed that day. There is no "separate" charge or whatever.

Billing / M.A. Incident 2 Billing
« Last post by Srsand on May 07, 2021, 02:08:15 PM »
Does anybody know anything about M.A. incident 2 billing for a physician outpatient office visit? My manager is wondering how to bill if the M.A. brings the patient and takes the History and Physical notes in a psychiatric office, before the Dr. sees patient. Not too Keen on this subject.

New! / Re: Steps to simplify ambulance billing and coding services

From the providers I have encountered in real life, plus all those I have read about, the introduction of an EMR to a practice costs the provider about 30% of his day.  Instead of seeing patients for that 30%, and increasing his revenue, he is paying attention to the requirements of the EMR, because the Insurance Carriers / Medicare won't pay him unless he does.


75% of the time my dr is in the room with me she is typing.   :-\   I can't imagine if the ambulance personal were trying to use EHR while caring for a patient.

Automation is one of the best ways to simplify a process.

And a great muffled laugh was heard across the country.

Simplification indeed.
