Infusion procedures, in particular, are difficult to code correctly. How clinical staff may be taught to document a service has nothing to do with the documentation detail needed to assign codes, there are also different coding guidelines for hospitals vs. physician-based settings. To add to the challenge, infusions, like other services, are now under even greater scrutiny for their medical necessity.
The best way to ensure that infusions are handled accurately – consistently – is through documentation, coding and billing review. This process determines if you are at risk and exactly what you need to do to mitigate it.
