Learn how to audit Radiation Oncology services like a rockstar.
Coding Radiation Oncology services can be confusing, especially if you don’t know how to read an isodose plan. What is an isodose plan? While it might sound a little like a trending fitness hashtag, the isodose plan determines the CPT code required to bill daily Radiation Treatment Delivery codes. It’s important. And accuracy is critical.
So, what can you do to ensure accuracy? First, know the types of treatment plans. The various treatment deliveries can prepare you to identify clinical documentation that supports medical necessity and helps to accurately capture daily and/or weekly radiation oncology billing codes, immobilization devices, units, and modifiers during the various phases of treatment.
Additionally, it helps to know how to properly read and interpret an isodose plan. It can be the determining factor in an audit's passing and/or failing.
