Billing during global with different surgeons in same practice

If one surgeon does a reduction in the ED, and another surgeon in the SAME practice takes over for follow up and subsequent ORIF, how is this billed?
Is modifer 54 used for reduction, or is this modifier ONLY used when post op care is with a diffferent group?
CMS and CPT guidelines for the modifier don’t specify.
Thank you!

The Coastal Imaging Success Story Part 1: The Transition

What does it take to unite three radiology groups and 38 providers into a new entity, secure favorable terms across a complex carrier mix, and serve a diverse patient population at four hospital locations? Working relationships. That’s how Coastal Imaging came to be from the merger of three independent groups. That’s the reason their collective KPIs improved across the board immediately following the transition. And that’s all because Coastal teamed up with a true business partner, not a billing vendor, to empower their financial future…

No Show Charges

We have a no show policy in our office that if a patient no show’s their appointment, there is a fee that is charged to the patient. My concern is that I am told we cannot bill any patient for a no show that has Medicaid or a Medicaid plan. I understand Medicaid patients have no financial responsibility if they have active coverage. It just seems to me that Medicaid patients can come and go as they please and we cannot utilize our policy for those patients. I am in New York State. Does anyone have problems with this or do I have the wrong information? Any suggestions or knowledge would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :confused:

PQRS Downward Payment Adjustments?

I have a provider who failed to complete sufficient PQRS data in 2015 and as a result is experiencing a 2% downward reimbursement adjustment for 2017. Could someone tell me if these downward adjustments are "permanent" (barring additional quality reporting penalties or merits) or if the reimbursement decrease is limited to one year (2017) and return to full reimbursement?

It’s Not Too Early to Prepare for a MIPS Performance Data Audit

Beginning in 2019 the level of reimbursement from Medicare to many physicians will be determined in part by their performance in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).  Medicare will award a higher level of payment to those eligible clinicians and groups who report that they have successfully met certain criteria for Quality, Advancing Care Information, and clinical practice Improvement Activities.  MIPS is the successor program to the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records (MU-EHR) incentive programs, and CMS (the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) has indicated that it will continue its practice of auditing the data submitted by practices just as they did under the earlier programs.  As this article in Healthcare IT News illustrates, the result of failing an audit will be non-payment of expected incentives (in the case of a pre-payment audit) or returning of funds already paid and possibly even federal sanctions depending on the severity of the infraction.

43239 with 43259

I need clarification. When these two procedures are done together and you bill them out with 43239, 43259-59 the only code that Medicare pays is 43259. Now I called Medicare and they indicate that another modifier needs to go on the 43239 and not a -59 or a -51. What is the proper way to bill for these two procedures? I’m leaning towards just not billing the EUS all together. any thoughts? Thank-you
