Originally from ticket #2950.
I am an ob/gyn and have tried to bill J163 on some triage patients. I received a message that these patients need a service location indicator. (it will be HED). On the MD billing interface, I cannot find the appropriate place to enter this information. Could you please tell me how I can input this information into my claim?
Also, I tried to enter 12 as the quantity for a CS I assisted for. (the OR was around 2 hours). But the quantity got changed once I added this claim to 20. Can you please explain why this happened?
Hi Dr. H,
1) You will need to enable the "Service Location Indicator" under the My Preferences tab (located under Specific To Medical Disciplines). Once enabled, revisit your claim and you will see a new field called Service Location, you can select the SLI codes then.
2) For assisting a surgery there is a base time unit that needs to be added to the surgery time unit. The service code you are billing for probably has a base time unit of 8. Please refer to the Schedule of Benefits to verify the base time unit.
Hope this helps.
