Unlike the process of billing for any medical specialty, definitive diagnosis is not a part of ambulance billing. Patients here are treated primarily on the basis of their apparent condition. The billing and the coding process are initiated on the basis of the patient care report which filed by the ambulance crew alongside the additional backing of the run sheets which is filled in the time patient is picked up.
It is critical to document the Patient care report accurately especially for billing clean and also for compliance. It has to contain all the specific details of the condition of the patients that reflect the injury based on the anatomy of the same. There are specific terminologies which are applied alongside the Mileage documentation, the level of service as well as the Advanced life support details.
If an emergency call has been received for an ALS dispatch and the assessment was conducted but no intervention was provided and yet the billing is done based on the ALS call, it will be a wrongly billed claim. Hence, it is experience and understanding of ambulance billing guidelines that make sure that payments are realized in a conclusive manner.
