Billing for Hospital and Ambulatory Surgery Centers
When it comes to medical billing, the procedural codes are extremely important in order to maintain accuracy and efficiency in the billing process. The billing codes and processes change according to the type of procedures being performed and the facility at which they are performed.
There are two different types of codes to consider when billing medical procedures. The first is the ICD-10-PCS, which outlines inpatient procedures performed on patients. The other is the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT), which provides information about rendered services rather than claims for insurance. These are often used in conjunction with the ICD-10 codes.
