Interventional Cardiology Billing
Interventional cardiology billing differs from its major counterpart, cardiology billing, by the procedures included in the billing system. Interventional cardiology is a much smaller, specific field that makes it much easier for the billing staff to keep track of all billable diagnostics and operations.
The interventional cardiology billing procedures, however simple the practice might be, is still prone to erroneous coding inputs and incomplete data. Every error on the supporting documents puts the practice at a disadvantage. It’s highly imperative to stress the need for accuracy in billing procedures, especially in specific practices like interventional cardiology.
Interventional cardiology requires an accurate description of the procedure performed by the physician to prevent potential losses in compensation or reimbursement. CPT descriptions are used by coders to quantify and categorize the procedure done by the physician. As procedures can be done both as an inpatient or an outpatient, procedures need to be categorized properly to specify the facility utilized to deliver the procedure.
