Orthotics and Prosthetics Billing Services

Prosthetics & Orthotics coverage may be subject to a copay or coinsurance. Authorization is required for various devices and this varies from payer to payer. This is considered a part of the member’s benefits provisions. For Prosthetic & Orthotics devices to be covered, a few of the general billing requirements are:

  1. A prescription from the ordering physician dated prior to delivery date.
  2. Consideration of limitations based on time period within which the item can be covered if supplied earlier.
  3. Appropriate modifiers must be billed, e.g. KX, LT / RT, NU etc.
  4. Coverage of devices also subject to qualifying diagnosis, e.g. orthotic shoes are not covered unless diagnosis states diabetic
  5. Repair, replacement and supplies may be eligible for separate reimbursement

Providing billing services for Prosthetics & Orthotics can be a time-consuming and wearisome affair. Among other things, it requires in-depth knowledge of reimbursement guidelines of Medicare, Medicaid and Commercial Plans, and their caveat. It also requires a constant devotion to quality and staying updated of all the changes happening in reimbursement regulations and coding & documentation requirements.
