ASC Coding Tip
Coding that results in your center receiving the maximum revenue allowable while remaining compliant can best be achieved by using the provider's completed operative report. It is important to rely on more than the surgery schedule's CPT code or the title on the operative note. Reading the report thoroughly often provides you with other billable codes that were not listed in those sources.
