Reimbursement is dynamic. Laws and regulations regarding reimbursement change frequently and providers are solely responsible for all decisions related to coding and billing including determining, if and under what circumstances, it is appropriate to seek reimbursement for products and services and obtaining pre-authorization, if necessary.
For these reasons, providers are advised to contact Medicare and/or specific payers if they have any questions regarding billing, coverage and payment. Likewise, providers should contact a medical specialty society or the AMA for coding clarification. Providers should check the complete and current HCPCS and/or CPT manual to see and consider all possible HCPCS and/or CPT codes.
