Re: RN placed PICC lines

One of our administrators tasked me to ask the following question of this forum - thanks for advance for your feedback.

'...how are other hospitals are billing for this service (RN, not NP) and what CPT codes and REV codes they are using?'

Re: RN placed PICC Lines

Billing for PICCs placed by RNs is through a facility fee. While the billing must be done through Medicare, there is no payment, but this enables billing through Private Insurance allowing you to recoup some monies. I tried to cut and paste a table but I will have to send it to you via email on codes used for insertion etc.

RN placed PICC lines and charging

I still question charging for US insertion for nurses.  My understanding is this is not a charge that a nurse can do.
