Get Aware of the Ins and Outs of Foot Care Coding
How do you handle all the complications in foot care coding for both CMS and other insurance carriers primarily due to medical necessity? CMS and many insurance carriers have very complex policies on foot care coverage.
Register for a 60-minute audio conference, presented by coding veteran & expert speaker Lynn Anderanin, CPC, CPC-I, COSC, to sort out the policies and review medical necessity, a crucial part of offering these services, and determining who is responsible for foot care, insurance or patients.
In this action-packed event, Lynn will guide you through the policies available from CMS and some of the major insurance carriers in the country. Both the ICD-9 and CPT coding will be reviewed, as well as when it is necessary for the patient to pay for these services, because the patient does not meet the criteria for coverage through their insurance carrier or Medicare. You’ll also understand shoes, inserts, and other prescribed orthotics.
Take a look at what you’ll learn:
- What foot care services are medically necessary
- CMS policies for foot care
- How to get reimbursed for orthotics, shoes, and other supplies
- What services are not covered
- Proper ICD-9 and CPT coding for foot care
