Reason for Appointment
1. Coccyx pain
1. Sacrococcygeal disorders, not elsewhere classified – M53.3 (Primary), Sacrococcygeal joint injection performed today with ultrasound guidance for coccyx pain. Had a periarticular injection performed a few weeks ago without much benefit. He has continued pain at the tip of the sacrum. He wants to explore all options before considering surgery on the spondylolisthesis at the lower lumbar spine. He has tenderness over the sacrococcygeal joint. With ultrasound guidance I advanced a 25-gauge needle using a cephalad to caudal approach into the sacrococcygeal joint. 6 mg Celestone and 1 cc 2% lidocaine injected
I have to bill for psych testing-96101 that doctor/psychologist had to abort because patient wouldn’t participate at all, she spent 2 hours on it reviewing notes, talking to the parents, observing a patient and DI-90791 was done on a different date as well, so I was wondering if using modifier 52 with this procedure code would be appropriate? We have to get paid at least a little bit for doctor’s work. Thanks so much
My doctor performed cerumen removal on the left side. On the right side, he performed ventilating tube removal and then expressed pus from the posterior earlobe.
How would the codes look like? I am thinking either 1,2 or 3:
- 69000, 69424-59, 69210-XS
- 69000, 69210-XS
- 69424, 10060, 69210-XS
I am a new CPC-A having attained my certification in May 2017. I have sent out a lot of applications and resumes. I finally got an interview this past Monday. The interviewer told me she would definitely be in touch with me. I felt like the interview was one of my best.
Here it is 4+ days later and I have heard nothing. I wrote a "Thank You" note to her on the same day for interviewing me. Everyone I met was very friendly and seemed sincere.
Is it too soon to hear anything? They are supposed to be hiring 4 people for 4 positions. Also, another supervisor was supposed to attend my interview but wasn’t present. I was also told that this employer has hired 4 students from the program I graduated from in May.
It’s been a while since I have actively looked for employment since I have been in school for a few years. I also realize that in some companies there is a lot of red tape and processes that take lots of time.
I would love to hear from any of you out there who have experienced this. I am feeling like I am not making any progress at all. I suppose I am being a bit impatient.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.:p
How would this be billed? Would it be billed under him as long as he signs that it was done? I am not sure about RN’s billings. I have only billed for our NP.
Thank you for any help.
