Did you know reimbursement for dialysis session supervision requires the attending physicians to be present during a procedure? Are you billing a 90935 instead of a 90937?
Nephrology medical billing is highly complex and requires dedicated resources to manage, understand and navigate ever changing federal guidelines and insurance requirements as well as variations in local carrier coverage determinations (LCD’s). Inadequate and incorrect documentation often result in costly errors, denied, or mis-adjuticated claims, and on occasion, can expose a practice to RAC audits and legal proceedings. It is no surprise that the average nephrology practice has experienced a 9% reduction in reimbursement over the past five years.

From billing monthly maintenance for hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis to appending appropriate procedural modifiers, CBS will work with your practice to identify problem areas, and educate your practice on best in class billing practices and procedures.
