Podiatry medical billing can be tricky, with many common mistakes that podiatrists should be aware of to ensure accurate reimbursement. Without information such as the proper coding, modifiers or diagnosis codes correctly added to the claim, podiatrists could be in danger of underpayment or even being denied altogether. Misunderstanding insurance policies and guidelines can also result in costly overpayments or payers' rejections.
Additionally, entering incorrect patient information into the system could cause costly delays, so a double-entry approach is always recommended. Identifying and correcting any inaccurate information on claims before the submission is highly important for podiatric medical billing success.
