Can we charge for surgery set up?

Geena Posted Tue 10th of April, 2012 13:23:47 PM

We are derm group and we block 20~30 min for procedures.
When patients cancel their appointment, is there any way to charge insurance for it, like surgery set up charge?

If the procedure is terminated prior to the induction of anesthesia and before the patient is wheeled into the procedure room, you should not report a procedure
