Fee Schedule and Encounter Procedures (CPT/HCPCS) go hand in hand when it comes to medical billing. Considering the fact that Fee Schedule and encounter procedures complement each other, these modules have been incorporated under Fee Schedule.
To open the Fee Schedule, go to the Setup menu and choose Fee Schedule.
The Fee schedule opens in a new window and allows you to manipulate the Fee Schedule and Encounter Procedures (CPT).
A default Standard Fee Schedule is created at the time of Account Creation. However, we can add more CPTs to the existing standard fee schedule.
Adding New CPT to Standard Fee Schedule
When Fee Schedule option is invoked from the Setup Menu, it would lead you to Fee Schedule window.
Fill in all the mandatory fields to create New CPT-
- Billable Code (A CPT or A HCPCS code)
- Billable Code Description
- Billable Amount
- Category (Category of the Billable code and it may either be a CPT or an HCPCS)
Other information is not mandatory; however, it would help the billing to be easy if updated. For e.g., Defaulting provider, CLIA# or Mammography Certification# would facilitate the charge entry and billing process when the CPT or HCPCS is selected.
Note: A New CPT can be added only to standard Fee Schedule.
Once these fields are updated, Click on Save button to save the CPT into the Standard Fee Schedule.
