IM FAIRLY NEW WHEN IT COMES TO FIGURING OUT FEE SCHEDULES. WE ARE GETTING READY TO UPDATE OUR PRICES FOR LOCALITY 99. I NEED HELP ON HOW TO CHARGE FOR THE OB/GYN CODES, HOW TO LOOK AT THE MEDICARE ALLOWED FEES AND WHAT TO CHARGE. IF YOU CAN GUIDE ME TO THE RIGHT DIRECTION OR MORE INFO IN REGARDS TO WHAT TO CHARGE AND HOW.

Thank you for your question.
You can obtain the fee amounts based on your locality in two suggested ways:
Supercoder.com- enter the code in the search field. Click on the Fee Schedule tab on the right hand side, enter locality, then calculate.

SO MY NEXT QUESTION IS HOW TO CALCULATE. FOR EXAMPLE 99212?

When using the supercoder.com Fee Schedule tab, choose your locality and click on the calculate button below, the fee will be calculated for you. The amount to charge will depend on your practice. You will want to research the allowable amounts for your major payers and come up with a charge amount that will not result in a high write off amount but a charge amount that will cover the average allowable. Hope this provides further clarity.
