This is a random coding question: Does it ever make sense not to submit a radiation delivery code but submit everything else? I am reviewing a practice and it seems that for a fair number of patients, everything (planning, IGRT, treatment mgmt) is submitted except the actual daily delivery code.
Is there some obvious explanation I am missing?
Or is the most likely explanation sloppy submission of codes?

Thanks - that's what I thought at first, but this is actually an office based practice (not outpatient hospital).
Could there be any other reasonable explanation?
