    Default Worker's Comp MTG

    AAPC: Back to School
    It's only the 2nd week of December and I've already had a couple of 3rd party payers citing that the new MTG do not comply with what was pereviously called "symptomatic treatment" for permanently disabled patients.

    Is this a situation that requires a variance request (MG-2) or pre-authoriztion (C-4AUTH)?
    Is there other paperwork involved such as a Doctor's Report of MMI/Permanent Impairment (C-4.3)? Does anyone have any incites on this before I call the WCB administration folks?

    Of couse, we don't want to lose business and we want to get paid, but we've been treating these permanetly disabled patients for a couple of years and would like to continue their medical chiropratic care to for them to maintain a resonable sense of functionability.
