RE: sendouts and consults....

From:"Weems, Joyce" <>

We were told by a consulting group that since there is no CPT code for
"Handling Charges" we could not bill. We ask the patient for a credit card
to bill Fedex charges if we are able to talk to them. 

We only charge for recuts if requested by an attorney. j:>)
