Billing Reimbursement Breakdown

Technical & Professional Components

In some cases, RSC Diagnostic Services bills for the technical component of our EEG services. As a reading physician you bill for the professional component for your interpretation of the EEG study. Many of our reading physicians find the following information helpful when billing the professional component:

RSC bills according to the # of units per study (48hr, 72hr, 96hr, 120hr) for an EEG with Video.
