About this program

Procedures and services related to the foot are very specific and can be quite confusing because of the medical necessity requirements and restrictions on the conditions that can be treated. This webinar will discuss these regulations and guidelines to offer a better understanding of when these services will be payable.

Medicare as well as other insurance carriers have specific policies related to nail debridement, treatment of corns and calluses, flat foot, and bunions, just to name a few conditions. The webinar will offer CPT and ICD-10 codes to know when the patient will be responsible for services or what the medical necessity and Documentation requirements are in order to effectively pass an audit by CMS or a commercial carrier. If the patient does not meet the medical necessity requirements, working with the patient on payment of these services can be an important part of having a successful profitable practice. These requirements can change at any time so knowing the current requirements is critical.

Topics to be discussed:

  1. When do the Q modifiers need to be added to procedures related to foot care.
  2. Obtaining the appropriate treating physician information and reporting it on Podiatry claims.
  3. Looking at the payable diagnosis(es) codes for podiatry services.
  4. Coding for custom inserts for diabetic patients
  5. Routine office procedures performed in foot care
  6. Reimbursement for flat foot
  7. Diabetic shoes
