  1. Hello everyone. I am working on the billing for a new LIS and I would like to know what others are doing. Do you charge CPT 36430 for all transfusions (adult and neonate) or do you use CPT 36430 for non-neonatal transfusions and CPT 36440/CPT 36450 for neonatal transfusions? 36430 – Transfusion, blood or blood components 36440 – Push transfusion, blood 2 years and under 36450 – Exchange transfusion, blood, newborn
  2. Is there a HCPCS code (P code) to charge for platelets that are leuko-reduced, irradiated, and washed?
  3. Hey everyone! My lab director seems to think we need to keep the packing slips from ARC for 10 years. Why would we do this? She checks the billing and makes sure everything is correct. Why keep them after the billing is checked? Anyone have any thoughts?
  4. Question: Do you bill for all crossmatches performed? Or only the ones that were ordered? Example: 1 RBC is ordered. Patient has a an antibody. You grab 4 units and crossmatch through Coombs. You then antigen type the compatible units. Do you bill for four XMs? Or just one? What about antigen typing? Four units? Or just one? We used to bill for all work done. Then someone told my director that we could only bill for what was ordered or it was medicare fraud.... but, I feel like that is not applicable to patients with antibodies that require much more work to find compatible blood. Thanks, Morgan
  5. Is there a HCPCS code (P code) to charge for platelets that are leuko-reduced, irradiated, and washed?
  6. Will anyone who is willing explain how they apply charges when these products are transfused to their neonates and what codes are utilized? Thanks in advance.
  7. Our hospital wants us to test for type and screens and crossmatches on a preadmission billing number. During an inpatient's stay, though, any blood products or crossmatching that is needed has to be billed on their inpatient finance number. Since testing and products have to be on the same finance billing number for our computer system, this has caused a big issue of billing charges being manually moved all the time. Does anyone have an answer for this?
