5010 Update and ICD-10

Posted by: Administrator  :  Category: Uncategorized

With medical coding and billing guidelines changing daily, it is important to have experienced professionals working for you.

Although, Medicare has changed the implementation date for the 5010 update, it is crucial to ensure that the proper guidelines are followed and to also cater to payer specific needs (Commercial, BCBS, HMO’s, Auto, Etc). Simple overlooks and common mistakes will cause a large increase in payment delays, rejections, in addition to increased wages spent on employees assigned to correcting the issues at hand.

ICD-10 is approaching soon and although staff may be trained in the basics of billing and coding, these new diagnostic codes will change billing as we know it. Proper education and training is a must regarding these changes as the specificity of the diagnosis will create the need for detailed documentation and accuracy.

We guarantee satisfaction and offer very competitive pricing for our services. Leave the headaches of updates and implementation up to us.

2011 Vaccine admin code changes for 18yrs and under

Posted by: Administrator  :  Category: Uncategorized

For 2011, the American Medical Association (AMA) introduced two new codes in CPT® for vaccine administration:

*90460 – Immunization administration through 18 years of age via any route of administration, with counseling by physician or other qualified health care professional; first vaccine/toxoid component

+90461 – Immunization administration through 18 years of age via any route of administration, with counseling by physician or other qualified health care professional; each additional vaccine/toxoid component (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure)

The new codes differ from the previous (now deleted) codes 90465-90468 in several ways. Most importantly, the previous codes were reported per immunization, whereas the new codes require you to report each component separately. A component refers to all antigens in a vaccine that prevent disease(s) caused by one organism. Combination vaccines are those that contain multiple vaccine components.
