Accepting insurance in your Acupuncture practice is a huge decision. The key however, to effectively and successfully accomplish this huge task is understanding exactly how it all works. Once understood you will then see that your fears are unfounded and that accepting insurance in your practice is completely, without a doubt, doable. It is so simple that you can even do it yourself! So whether you are a complete “insurance virgin”, or the “already somewhat versed in ‘insuranceeze’ but still want to know and understand more” type, then THIS WORKSHOP IS DEFINITELY FOR YOU!
Intro: Yes, it’s daunting! Yes, it’s complex! So what! If you’re are not accepting insurance in your practice, then you are missing out on new patient potential and thousands of dollars! Did you know that more and more health insurance companies are including Acupuncture as a benefit in insurance plans? Did also you know that Acupuncture treatments for injuries sustained in a MVA (motor vehicle accident) are covered in nearly ALL auto insurance policies in our state?
Doesn’t it make sense then, to at least consider ACCEPTING INSURANCE IN YOUR PRACTICE, thus giving your patients the option of using their healthcare when getting Acupuncture? Not convinced? Consider the following situations:
- The importance of treatment notes, Acupuncture Reports and how to communicate with insurance companies.
- Exploring types of insurance, insurance terminology, verifying coverage.
- Understanding in network -vs- out of network, the 8-minute rule, modifiers, fee schedules, ICD and CPT codes and how to use them effectively.
- HICF (Health Insurance Claim Form) -vs- Superbill, how to accurately fill out a HICF, submitting a claim, understanding the EOB (Explanation of Benefits)
- Acupuncture and No-Fault (aka automobile insurance)
