Billing for endoscopy services (i.e. upper and lower GI, lung) from Medicare (and most other insurances) is a different concept than you may be used to. Multiple surgical rules are not used. You need to know specific RVU values, and there are rules on whether to bill a procedure at all. Also, knowing how to document for these services is also a part of making sure your practice is not leaving dollars on the table.
