Modifiers, additional information as defined by NUCC, NDC codes, units of medication, place of service, all other special service notes on a claim is vital for successful Derm billing. For example, if billing skin lesions to insurance, coding must identify location, number, size, and type of lesion. If the removal is for cosmetic purpose, patient needs to be provided with a good faith estimate and consented to pay the charges before the procedure is done. Many Dermatology codes are also bundled, which means these codes cannot be billed on the same day. If treatment is done for different sites of the body, some codes can be unbundled with proper modifier and supporting documentation. For surgeries, practice needs to obtain proper authorization and/or pre-determination. Billers need to carefully review operative notes to be certain medical records can be submitted to insurance to support surgery claims. Our team of billing experts works with doctors, insurances, and patients to ensure payment for surgery claims.
