OHIP billing for surgical assist - time unit calculation
Hi - just want to make sure I"m doing right. I've enabled the calculator in preferences.
Did a surgical assist for 1 hr (1140hrs - 1240hrs) - why does the calculator enter the quantity as "10"? if it's 15min units, shouldn't the quantity be 4?
In addition to the surgical assist Time Units, Basic Units were added. The formula for calculating time units is Qty = Basic Units + Time Units. Also, time units are not always linear. See Schedule H in the Schedule of Benefits.
MDBilling.ca's software automatically calculates time units for you. The linked page has more details if you need it.
