Your podiatry billing needs are unique. Our podiatry department focuses on one thing: getting your claims paid the first time. Practice Management staff maintain the highest level of expertise in podiatry billing, coding, modifiers, and DME.
CPT & ICD-9 Coding
Knowing and following the coding rules and regulations is the key to getting paid. Our team provides feedback and error resolution with the goal of 100% claim adjudication on the first attempt. Your coding is reviewed for new and/or obsolete diagnosis and CPT codes, as well as compatible CPT and diagnosis code combinations. Experts monitor your office, nursing home, surgical, X-ray and DME coding for accuracy of your podiatry billing.
Proper use of modifiers results in paid claims. Podiatry billing requires many informational modifiers and also requires payment modifiers. Coding combinations and anatomical site determine the selection.
Our specialists in DME billing ensure claims are submitted with appropriate modifiers and correct place of service codes according to DME guidelines.
Practice Management staff are required to stay up-to-date with Medicare’s Routine Foot Care Local Coverage Decisions and the "Indications and Limitations of Coverage and/or Medical Necessity". Knowledge of "Class Findings", correct codes and the required claim information result in quick turn-around time for payment of your claims.
Our focus on correct coding and billing of Surgical Procedures are instrumental to the financial health of your practice.
