Tools and resources to help educate your insurer about severe food allergies and why you may qualify to get reimbursement. Remember, our Nutricia Navigator team can help you navigate the reimbursement landscape.
Claims for Reimbursement usually require use of Reimbursement and Healthcare Common Procedures Coding System (HCPCS) Codes:
“Reimbursement billing codes” are terms you will often hear referenced. The codes are part of a system created by insurance companies to identify the nutritional product or category and to process claims. Some states require by law that certain diagnoses must be subject to reimbursement. Your doctor’s office may have more information regarding reimbursement in your state.
- Neocate products are identified using HCPCS or Reimbursement Codes (see below).
- Most insurance plans and government programs recognize these reimbursement billing codes.
In addition, there are diagnosis billing codes, also called ICD-10 codes, that identify the disease of the patient and may be required when submitting for reimbursement.
By providing accurate coding and complete documentation, you greatly increase your chance for coverage and payment.
