The location of place of services should always be code accurately when it comes to different setting that services is being rendered. For example, a check at your primary care doctor will be a different code and fee than conducting a minor surgery procedure at an outpatient clinic.

Reimbursement schedule is a set of listing fee schedule used by healthcare insurance company (Medicare) to pay doctors, providers, or suppliers which is used to reimburse healthcare professionals on a fee for service basis. For example, after a patient undergo services from a doctor office or hospital the insurance company or government payers reimburse for the service that was provided.

  1. What is a copay?

Copay is a fixed amount that is being covered by a patient before seeing a health care professional to rendered service. For example, a patient goes in to see their primary care doctor to conduct a physical check-up for the visit at the office the fee to see the doctor id $89.00 the insurance covers for the visit however, for the procedure that is being provided the patient will need to cover the remaining 25% of service which is the copay.

4. What type of service does the term “procedure coding” includes?
Some of the procedures includes:
– Medicine (90281 to 99607) 
– Anesthesia (00100 to 01999)
