Podiatry billing can be complicated in many ways, beginning with the need to determine and prove the treatment’s medical necessity to the coding nuances. In addition to this, podiatry practices primarily treat the elderly, necessitating additional billing & coding efforts, as Medicare covers this population. It also demands meticulous use of modifiers and an understanding of coding for inclusive procedures.

Podiatrists usually hire an in house team of coders or billing companies that claim to have experience in podiatry billing. Many of these resources often lack the expertise to track, record & rectify underpaid or unpaid claims consistently. Thereby creating a need for podiatrists to shift to outsourcing their billing & coding needs to reliable & successful billing companies with expertise in the specialty.
