Description

Description:

There seems to be constant coding and documentation changes, pressure to increase efficiencies as reimbursement continues to decline, and the need and desire to stay on top of the latest clinical outcomes and literature that drive protocols and treatments. It is difficult to keep up on all of the things that affect our practice. This course is designed as an overview to understand all things L Codes (hence soup to nuts – who really ends with nuts for dessert)? If you can relate to any of these statements or questions, then this course is for you! What is an L Code? I can only bill custom fabricated splints. How much should we charge for that orthosis? I still use CPT codes to bill for splints. I don’t understand what a split code is? How do I know what L code to bill? I don’t know if I need a DME license or not?
