Documentation, Coding and Billing for Unproven Procedures
Recorded On: 07/09/2020
State guidelines and 3rd party payors identify procedures that are deemed “experimental, investigational and unproven”. This lengthy list of procedures includes laser therapy, kinesio-taping, dry needling and many, many more. This session will cover in detail:
-The definition and meaning of “unproven, investigational and experimental” procedures
-Best Practices (and even state rules for some!) for communicating this type of procedure properly to your patients
-Where and how to learn which procedures are labeled as “unproven” (We’ll even review some payor policies in this session)
-How to code and bill for unproven procedures (for insurance and self-pay patients)
-Documentation rules and best-practices for clearly recording the rendering of these procedures in your patient notes
• Identify unproven procedures that you may be rendering in your own practice
• Assess the rules and/or ‘best practices’ for communicating this “unproven” label to patients
• Recognize code selection matters for self-pay and insurance patients! We’ll review proper coding for many commonly performed unproven procedures
