pain management-interventional

  1. Default pain management-interventional
    Medical Coding Books
    With guidelines varying from insurance company to ins company, is there any advice as to how to keep track of which companies ie. require 2 facet injections at 8 week intervals as opposed to those that do not, and rather have the radiofreq done? We get authorization however the claims still get denied. Some pay for only diagnostic, while others pay for therapeutic.
    Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you so much.

    Have a excel spreadsheet with:

    Insurance Carrier/ Medical Policy link /Frequency of inj./ Additional criteria/RF

    If you locate the policy and it is a spreadsheet that can be printed out, multiple employees of the organization can work from it.
