Medicare Billing: What is the appropriate date of service to use when a test has been interpreted?

The interpretation must be billed with the date the physician actually provided the interpretation. The date of the professional component billed to Medicare Part B, and the date in both the supporting medical records and on the report must agree. However, the date of the interpretation does not have to agree with the date of the technical component.
