Pain Management Billing
Pain management billing encompasses a variety of specialties from different providers. Most medical billing procedures are centered on the procedure and the diagnosis of the patient. Pain management differs in the way that several of its Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes include both the procedure and the anatomical location of where the procedure will be performed.
Pain management billing requires a level of expertise and sophistication to utilize certain modifiers, and an understanding of how global days affect relative treatment procedures. Proper coding of aspirations, pain pumps, and injections are also expected to satisfy the pain management billing procedures.
To add to the responsibilities of a clinician who codes pain management billing, pain management centers also submit workers’ compensation claims which tend to be complicated, and oftentimes tedious.
