Frequently Asked Questions

Why am I being billed twice for my surgery?

Surgeries performed in our Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) will have two claims that look identical. Both the provider and the ASC submit claims for services. Dr. Levy (NPI 1427053834) bills the professional component and the ASC (NPI 1902043284) bills for the facility component.  

Why does the statement show I am being billed based on time?

Office visit codes are selected by either time OR medical decision making (MDM).  

Medical decision making is based on the number and complexity of the problems addressed, the amount and/or complexity of data reviewed or ordered, and the risk of complications and/or morbidity or mortality of patient management.
