Podiatrists would have to deal with different foot conditions, be it chronic or acute. On that note, all services cannot be paid that easily by insurers. In fact, many services related to the foot are hinged on medical needs for part of the requirements, and this makes podiatry coding quite complicated.
One of the best things about medical coding is that it has important requirements for clean claim submission. This is specifically related to ICD-10, CPT and HCPCS codes, and they must be used to make diagnosis and treatment reports provided to prevent claim denials and make sure that there are appropriate reimbursements.
