CMS provides Medicare Inpatient list. There are several links Dr. Hirsch has provided to clarify the topic so I will not spend much time to save reader's time.
Our recommendation is that hospitals should ask for CPT® / Procedure codes from the physician / physician office. We have built an online search tool to check against the Medicare Inpatient only list that many find it very convenient to use. Please read the limitations and disclosures before using this website. I hope this makes it easier for you to use the Medicare Inpatient only list or serves as a backup tool for whatever your primary source of verification may be.
Please feel free to visit www.hospitalcasemanagement.net and look for inpatient tab for more details.
If you choose to use this website to meet your needs then you can check multiple procedures in one screen. You have the opton to print your work by printing it to your printer or print a PDF file and save it for reference for later use or make it part of the patient medical Records if you are allowed to scan the documents or insert a PDF file. No PHI is asked or stored on the website.
For more information on accuracy of the list please refer to resources tab.
