Radiotherapy treatment planning

Karen Posted Thu 07th of July, 2011 13:00:03 PM

We have had several cases were patients were simulated, several plans generated and due medical reasons , size/location/extend of the disease, the decision was made that it was not safe to treat. The patient had already signed a consent for treatment. Wha charges would be ok to bill seing that the provider decided not to go ahead and treat? SIM , Calculations only or can we bill for the Treatment plan?

Since, no exact service has been initiated/provided in the direction of Treatment and has been cancelled at an early stage, it is appropriate Not to bill for the Treatment plan. Hence to bill only for the rest(Sim).
