I got a call from a potential client that is a certified surgical tech. He claims that he does his own billing for his services in assiting surgeons in surgeries. I've been doing billing for about 10 years now and i honestly haven't heard of surgical techs billing for their services. He faxed me an eob to show me one of the CPT code that was billed for his services and it got paid to him.
It showed CPT code - 43281 (Laparoscopy, surgical, repair of paraesophageal hernia, includes fundoplasty, when performed; without implantation of mesh) with modifier - AS.
He does have a NPI under his name and a TAX ID.
Is this possible? I don't want to do business with him if this is illegal in anyway.
