documentation requirements for ultrasound-guided joint injections
I am looking for resources to show what documentation requirements are needed to bill for ultrasound guided injections. there is a disagreement in our office as to whether a SEPARATE, STAND ALONE NOTE needs to be documented in order to bill a 20611 (for example). My understanding was they did not need a separate note and could dictate what was done within the office visit note as long as it stated it was a ultrasound guided injection and where the injection was done. How is this documented in your practices? thanks for your input!
