From respiratory conditions to sleep disorders and studies, coders and billers in pulmonology practices have particular concerns that must be addressed in order to ensure proper coding for complicated procedures.
If your pulmonologist administers a pneumovax vaccine, you want to make sure adequate documentation is provided to support the medical necessity of providing the vaccine. For patients over 65 years with respiratory issues like asthma or COPD, or with other medical conditions like congestive heart failure, cirrhosis, diabetes mellitus, and for patients who are immunosuppressed (due to chemotherapy, HIV, after organ transplantation, or currently on immunosuppressive drugs), this can get complex.
Are you familiar with the details that need to be included in the documentation for these conditions and procedures, such as the type (manufacturer and lot #) of vaccine that is administered and the route of administration employed by your pulmonologist? The purpose of administration and patient response should also be included in the documentation.
