Wound Care Billing and Coding Challenges:

It is common for family physicians to provide wound care to their patients. For wound care, it is paramount to code and bill correctly in order to ensure that appropriate payment is made and to avoid potential allegations of fraud or abuse. A challenge in this regard is determining when to report chemical cauterization of granulation tissue as opposed to debridement, particularly as it pertains to Medicare patients.

Insurance does not cover all types of wound care, and those that are covered require a series of administrative activities, such as adequate documentation and accurate coding. It is the provider's responsibility to determine whether the wound treatment falls within medical necessity guidelines and whether the patient's insurance policy covers it. Knowledge of insurance coverage policies, medical necessity guidelines, and prior authorization requirements is required in order to accomplish this task.
