Help with billing cataract surger done on MC patient in Skilled Nursing

We billed a cataract surgery 66984 plus the reporting G codes to Novitas (We are an ASC in TX). Novitas paid and then denied/recouped due to the patient being in a SNF at the time of her surgery.
Is there a modifier that could have been used on this? 54 for Surgical Care Only??
We were told to send the claim and op notes, etc to the SNF in which we did and now we are unable to get ahold of them.
Any help would be much apprectiated.

Hospital Rounding Billing

When tasked with billing for hospital visits, not coding them, but billing them – is it standard practice to read over over hospital note you are billing for? Currently, I am not reading over hospital visit notes, as the provider tells me who they saw and what level to bill. It was bought to my attention that I should be reading over each note before I bill for them. I wanted to get info from others, as in twenty plus years in "billing" not coding, I have never read over a hospital visit note before keying the charge, nor have I ever had a problem with that when audited by the insurance carrier. Please let me you your thoughts on this, or if you can point me to any "billing" rules that state I must read over the notes. As a coder, I would say most def, but as a "biller" I think not. Help please. :)

Getting paid for LARC insertion immediately after delivery?

Will a provider get paid for LARC insertion immediately after delivery? It is my understanding that this was considered part of the global package in the past. Now, I want to make sure in Georgia that it is paid outside of the global. Can anyone assist me? Thanks!!

CPC Sample Exam A Question

52 year-old female has a mass growing on her right flank for several years. It has finally gotten significantly larger and is beginning to bother her. She is brought to the Operating Room for definitive excision. An incision was made directly overlying the mass. The mass was down into the subcutaneous tissue and the surgeon encountered a well encapsulated lipoma approximately 4 centimeters. This was excised primarily bluntly with a few attachments divided with electrocautery. What CPT® and ICD-10-CM codes are reported?
A. 21932, D17.39
B. 21935, D17.1
C. 21931, D17.1
D. 21925, D17.9
The rationalization says to look up Lipome/Trunk (skin)/ subcutaneous. Answer (b)..
My coding is for physicians.
MY QUESTION: how would I have determined Trunk means (skin)?
Thank you for any assistance.
