Meditech sites and billing CPT 36430

Recommended Posts

With ICD-10 codes coming very soon, fiscal department wants Blood Bank to figure out a way to charge a patient for CPT 36430 when they receive any number of blood products on the day of service. This code is billed on a per service basis and not on the number of units of blood products transfused per day.

Has anyone encountered this request and developed a "rule" for this billing code? This rule would be used for both inpatients and outpatients.

There has been no valid response from Meditech---looking for "key words"????

Thank you.

Since this is a "one time" per day charge, regardless of how many products the patient receives, how do they keep tract?

I doubt if this would be a viable option at my facility. 

thanks

We don't have Meditech, but I would suggest finding out if they can define a billing rule to remove all but one 36430 a day.  Then have the nurses charge one with every unit; no need to keep track.  That is what we do with Epic.
