While General Surgeons perform a wide range of procedures, the specialty itself is anything but “basic” and the billing is anything but “simple.” General surgeons may perform an appendectomy, a colonoscopy, or even a biopsy all in one day, at any point in time.
Since general surgeons provide such a variety of services under unique circumstances, documentation, coding and billing are extremely important to success. Billers must know the specifics of how and when to bill “incident to, shared visits, E/M, proper HCPC, CPT codes and the list goes on.
There’s often little time to ask the surgeon follow-up questions on the operative notes. Many general surgeons experience upcoding or undercoding issues and even increases in denials due to ineligibility or insufficient documentation.
