Description:

Routine footcare. Not necessarily a focus in today’s healthcare landscape. But one day we’ll return to our “old normal” and a need to understand this service will return, also. Footcare can be very confusing to code, difficult to get reimbursed, and, according to some organizations, not worth the billing headaches. CMS provides us a very detailed Local Coverage Determination (LCD) to follow, but the combination of required modifiers, limited covered diagnoses, and unclear documentation requirements make it more confusing than helpful to many. Join us as we untangle the coding and documentation dos and don’ts of routine footcare, in the hopes we can all land on our feet.

Objectives:

At the end of this webinar, attendees will:

  • Have a better understanding of the CMS Routine Footcare LCD
  • Receive documentation guidance to improve reimbursement of routine footcare services
  • Receive suggestions to reduce denials of routine footcare services

We’ll also invite attendees to share ideas for improving reimbursement of routine footcare services in their own organizations.
