How To Bill Surgical Assist? (E003B)


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?

- D



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.'s software automatically calculates time units for you. The linked page has more details if you need it.
