Q. How to tell if the Mutual is a set or Shared Mutual?

A. To determine If it is a set mutual. Always check the hourly billing rate first.

To be clear two patients billing at the normal rate for example (7.06 per unit)  has 2 schedules 9-1 the 1-5, each patient gets billed separately.

If the case is a shared mutual two patients get billed at the lower rate for example (3.53 per unit) for receiving service at the same time 9-3 for both patients.
