Product Description

Simplifying the Intricacies of HCPCS Codes for Podiatry and its Documentation

 

Podiatry coding for procedures can be really complicated, but the rules and guidelines for coding orthotics, inserts, and diabetic shoes, just to name a few, are even more complex. It is important to understand and choose the appropriate HCPCS codes for these as well as know what insurance carriers will reimburse for and what will be the responsibility of the patient. Your practice could be losing valuable revenue if the reimbursement is not covering the costs.

In this audio conference, Lynn M. Anderanin, CPC, CPPM, CPC-I, COSC, will look at CMS references to assist in assigning the appropriate HCPCS code as well as what documentation is necessary for these supplies. She will review PDAC, NCDs, and DMERC LCDs, and will walk you through the confusion of the HCPCS codes.

There is a small profit margin in dispensing many of these supplies to patients whether they are customized or off the shelf. After this conference, you’ll have a better understanding of what is necessary to ensure that these supplies are reimbursed and not a revenue liability. It is crucial for a practice to be profitable in the area of DME by having a full understanding of insurance carrier policies and guidelines.
