Billing for Trauma Activation without Pre-hospital Notification.

Wondering about billing for trauma activation without pre-hospital notification....and how to capture charges for these services.  Bundle the charge in with the facility E&M level? 


  • Kellie - I would suggest charging it the same way, just not under a 68X revenue code. One set of charges (Alert, Partial Team, Full Team) under 68x and another identical set under 45x. At claims roll the 45x charges into your ED Facility E&M line.

  • I agree with John. I worked at a system that created two sets of charges, one for pre notification with revenue code 68X, and the other for when the trauma team was activated internally, without prenotification with rev code 45X.
