Billing for POC US in the ED

Recommended Posts

Yes. Must be credentialed by hospital, must be no restrictions to ultrasound by state regulations, must save documented imaging into chart, etc.


It's can get complicated. There is no CPT code for FAST exam (for example). Much of what ultrasound does is increase the complexity of the decision making so upcoding takes place that way.

I believe page 116 talks about PAs and ultrasound billing.
