Q/A: How do we Know Which Codes a Payer Will Allow?
March 22nd, 2019 - Wyn Staheli, Director of Research
How do we know which codes a payer will allow? The best way to determine the codes (CPT, ICD-10-CM and HCPCS) allowed by a payer is to review their payer policy. While it is good to know the official guidelines (e.g., ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting, AMA Guidelines, Medicare ...

March 18th, 2019 - Aimee Wilcox, CPMA, CCS-P, CMHP, CST, MA, MT
If you've ever taken piano lessons, you know that the thumb is considered the first finger of the hand. Anatomically, it is also referred to as the first phalanx (finger). However, when you are coding an x-ray of the thumb, images are captured of the thumb, hand, wrist, and all ...

So far, Medicare has not provided additional guidance about this question despite requests by us for clarification. Medicare now requires non-participating providers to include the ...

Q/A: Can you Help me Understand the New Medicare Insurance Cards?
March 7th, 2019 - Wyn Staheli, Director of Research
As many of you are aware, CMS began issuing new Medicare identification cards last year which required the replacement of social security numbers with a new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI). All cards have now been mailed out and patient's should have the new cards when they come in. Currently, we are in the transition period until January 2020.
Date of Service Reporting for Radiology Services
March 7th, 2019 - Wyn Staheli, Director of Research
Providers need to ensure that they are reporting radiology dates of service the way the payer has requested. Unlike other many other professional services which only have one date of service (DOS), radiology services can span multiple dates. Medicare requirements may differ from professional organization recommendations.
