The approved issues target outpatient hospital and physician claims and correspond with those approved for many states in RAC regions C and D that were posted over the past few weeks:

  • Blood Transfusions. Blood transfusions should be billed with a maximum of one unit per patient per date of service.

  • IV-Hydration. IV-Hydration should be billed with a maximum of one unit per patient per date of service.

  • Bronchoscopy Services. Bronchoscopy services should be billed with a maximum of per unit per patient per date of service.
