On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Coding Edition with Teresa Duncan, MS Teresa gives us a breakdown of D999 and its use for laser disinfection. She shares good news, and not-so-great news surrounding the coding and billing of laser disinfection and tips to help you avoid an audit finding that you committed fraud!
“So a denial is if they decide to not cover the procedure, but they’re going to allow you to bill a patient. That’s a denial. A disallow is when they decide not to pay for it, but they also aren’t going to let you charge the patient.”
“Doing a dummy code for the purposes of getting reimbursed is actually, I don’t want to go too much into it, but it’s a little bit of deception and so it could be counted as fraud because there’s motive behind it.”
