So you don't submit billed charges and take a write off? Just bill the mandated rate to WC?Actually, that depends on the laws of your local jurisdiction. Generally, Workers Comp Boards create their own fee schedules for workers comp claims. In NYS the WCB has a very comprehensive fee schedule that has no relation to what a commercial payor may be billed. So the answer is "it depends" on the laws of your state.
To be clear I work for a law firm that provides defense for insurance companies in no-fault auto claims. In NYS the fees for no-fault claims are tied directly to the fee schedule established by the Workers Comp Board. NY's no fault law limits the liability of carriers to WCB schedules. So I would assume that the providers do take the write off from the billed amount vs. the fee scheduled amount. Regarding workers comp claims, while not my area of expertise, I would also assume that workers comp providers who bill above the fee schedule also write off the difference, since the law prohibits billing the patient/claimant for the difference between the billed amount and the reimbursed amount.So you don't submit billed charges and take a write off? Just bill the mandated rate to WC?
You would think so, but Medicare and many commercial insurances have a clause in their network participation contracts that says you agree to bill them them no more than any other payer.Ok. Essentially the point being your card rate is your card rate regardless of the client or third party payor. But again isn't that kinda moot in this day and age when providers and insurance carriers enter into contracts that include comprehensive fee schedules?
