MCP charges and office visits


Blairs, VA
Best answers
Please....how do I get our providers to understand that when they see their dialysis patients in the office to evaluate the dialysis access or an infection, redness, knots or other problems with the access that it is part of their MCP charge? I have printed the guidelines for what is included in MCP charges but they still insist that they can charge to evaluate the access. Are there any other resources available that are written plain enough that there should be no question? Thanks in advance for ANY help
