Billing for Durable Medical Equipment
Medical billing is the process by which insurance companies are charged for healthcare services provided to their clients. In order to do this, billing codes that represent different aspects of the billing process are implemented. According to the new ICD-10, there are seven alphanumeric characters that are used in order to describe the diagnoses and procedures being applied to the specific patient.
The characters correspond to different aspects of a diagnosis or procedure and allow the data to be uploaded for billing without having to manually describe either a diagnosis or procedure. This allows the process to be implemented faster without having to describe everything in detail.
