Product Description

Keeping up-to-date with the latest Podiatry Procedures Coding

 

Though podiatrists have to follow strict guidelines to show certain foot procedures are medically necessary, there is little good advice available on how to accurately code and report podiatry services.

It’s a challenge for podiatrists and their staff to understand when insurance reimbursement may be a problem based on the patient’s diagnosis or condition.

Join expert speaker Lynn Anderanin in this webinar to review podiatry coding and understand the documentation requirements to substantiate procedures and services that are routinely performed. Also, get clear guidance on when the patient will be responsible if medical necessity is not met, with information on ABN forms and other tools to assist in this situation.

Session Highlights

  • Medical necessity for services performed on toe nails and when they are considered for payment by insurance carriers
  • Wound care and what is to be expected in coding and reimbursement to treat ulcers of the foot
  • What is considered routine foot care and when is the patient responsible for the services
  • Surgical procedures performed in the outpatient setting and what conditions are treated in these cases
  • Treating flat foot and the difference between payment and denial based on the diagnosis
