  • 1.  Coding charges

    I have the  RVU allowed per code chart and charge $70 per RVU which is slightly above the usual and customary charge in my area.  I found the customary charge by asking at another clinic in town. By the way I never get this full fee but by charging this way I believe I get the maximum that the insurance companies will pay.  The RVU chart is on the medicare sight I believe, as well as the $ that medicare will pay for each CPT code.  For clients without insurance I have a sliding scale based on a 20%, or 30% discount and the medicare fee and discount according to the client's means.
