Correct Medical Billing Reimbursements for Power Mobility Devices

Due to the unfortunate incidence of fraud, there are some strict medical billing requirements for getting reimbursed for power mobility devices. Additionally, the time the physician spends working on the extra documentation is also billed at the current rate of an extra $21.60 for the extra time spent on power mobility medical billing.

Recently there was an increase in the amount of documentation that is needed to do medical billing for power mobility devices. Medicare requires the prescription, patient’s medical records and any other supporting information. Instead of lowering the amount of medical billing documentation for power mobility devices, Medicare decided to properly compensate for the extra time it creates. Now physicians can charge for a regular exam and also a $21.60 charge for the preparation of documentation.

Be sure to include the coding for not only the exam but also the documentation. First, the physician can charge for a regular evaluation and management exam. Second, the physician can report the medical billing code G0372 (Physician service required to establish and document the need for a power mobility device). This is actually equal to the medical billing of a level one office visit with an established patient. This medical billing information is required to be delivered to the device supplier within 30 days of the medical encounter.

If you’re not getting maximum reimbursements for your medical billing, it’s time to consider outsourcing, if you aren’t already using a medical billing partner, you could be getting underpaid for nearly one-fourth of your medical billing claims. Find out how outsourcing can benefit your practice today.
