    how are valid revenue codes assigned to cpt codes?

  2. SuperCoder Posted 4 Year(s) ago

    Outpatient UB-04 claims must be billed with both a revenue code and a CPT or HCPCS code. A revenue code must be assigned (Form Locator [FL] 42) for each line item. If multiple CPT or HCPCS are necessary to reflect multiple, distinct, or independent visits with the same revenue code, repeat the revenue code as required.
    Absence of a CPT or HCPCS code for any revenue code not listed on the policy may affect claim payment or result in a claim denial. When required, CPT and HCPCS codes are assigned in FL 44.

    Revenue code Description
    0250–02593 Pharmacy
    0270–0273, 0275–0279 M&S supplies and device
    0370–0379 Anesthesia
    0620–0622 Supplies
