Chiropractic Medicare Billing Course
Master Medicare In Your Office With This Carefully Crafted Chiropractic Course
There’s just no getting around it. Medicare is complex. The complexity is the result of the government getting involved in health care. Every time there is a problem in the system, new regulations are put into effect. These regulations are posted on the CMS website and it is up to you to find, interpret and implement them. (Some of these regulations were put into effect in the 1990s). Then to “inspire” compliance, stiff fines are imposed.
There Is A Learning Curve
To get a grip on all this you could become your own expert by spending hours and hours on the web dredging through reams of government gobble-de-goop. But that’s not necessary because we have done all that for you and have created this expert online chiropractic Medicare billing course. With this course you have access to the information you need to know, presented in a highly effective training method and condensed into a very time efficient format.
It is a huge mistake to operate your practice and not be aware of the rules that can subject you to a $10,000.00 fine per service. And to compound the problem there is a lot of misinformation in the chiropractic community about Medicare.
The Facts Are That:
Non-Par Doctors Must Still Bill Medicare
All chiropractic Medicare covered services must be billed to Medicare by the provider or the provider could face penalties. This requirement extends to maintenance visits as well as active corrective visits.
An exception to this is when the beneficiary has signed a valid Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage (ABN) with Option #2 selected
Maintenance Care Is Still A Covered Service
All spinal manipulations, including maintenance adjustments, are covered services under Medicare and therefore they must be filed.
Option 2 of the ABN cannot be used to circumvent filing maintenance adjustments.
Non-PAR Doctors Can Be Audited
Any Medicare claim submitted can be audited or reviewed; the non-par or participating (par) status of the physician does not affect the possibility of this occurring.
Chiropractors Cannot Opt-Out Of Medicare
Opting out of Medicare is not an option for Doctors of Chiropractic. Note that opting out and being non-participating are not the same things. Chiropractors may decide to be participating or non-participating with regard to Medicare, but they may not opt out and offer services under a private agreement.
Non-Par Providers Have the Same Documentation Requirements as Par Providers
Chiropractic care has documentation requirements to show medical necessity. The participation status of the provider is irrelevant to the documentation requirements.
Chiropractors Cannot Order Durable Medical Equipment
A chiropractor may act as supplier of durable medical equipment (DME) if he has a valid supplier number assigned by the National Supplier Clearinghouse, but a chiropractor will not be reimbursed if he orders DME.
