Updates for Anesthesiology Billing

KIP Deluxe version 11 now includes the following updates for Anesthesiology which may apply to other specialties as well.

1) Provisions for more than one treatment provider per claim.

Some anesthesia claims require that multiple treatment providers be billed on one claim to be paid.

The example given concerned Blue Cross Blue Shield and a patient in labor who receives a spinal in the labor room by one anesthesiologist and then undergoes a C-section in the OR by another anesthesiologist on the same day. These charges are required to be billed on the same claim (either electronically or on paper).

As you can see in the line item image below, each line item can now have a unique provider. To reach this area, click the double triangles to the left of the word Diagnosis when editing an invoice.

Editing the provider on a CPT line in handled with a single click. No typing is needed.

2) Anesthesia minutes and units

Anesthesia billing requires both minutes and units on the claim. KIP always allowed both the minutes and units on the claim, however, KIP now calculates the units automatically once the anesthesia minutes are entered.
