Importance of accurate coding

3rd Party Insurers Reimbursement

Maximize revenue for your family planning services by assuring all services are coded accurately and to the highest level provided.

  • Medicaid – MCO’s!!! Use right ICD code for CPT codes!! Check denials and FIX!
  • Private insurers – Ditto above!!
  • 4 Districts/11 LHD do not bill private insurers.

Statewide over $400,000 in revenue were collected from private insurers for FPP.

private insurers
Private Insurers
  • Typically pay higher rates than Medicaid
  • Lost revenue to support clinical services
  • Required by KAR to bill 3rd party payers


  • Pick largest insurers in county that patients seek services - negotiate a contract
  • Reach out to others to learn how to bill private insurers
  • BE PREPARED FOR 2014 – Potential for noninsured to be insured
maximize fee collection
Maximize Fee Collection
  • Assure accurate documentation of income into PSRS system for assessing sliding fee and self pay
  • Income is to be assessed every 6 months - AR. Title X allows verification of income - AR
  • Assure complete and accurate coding of all services to assure highest level of fee collection from sliding fee schedule
maximize fee collection1
Maximize Fee Collection
  • Always give patients a copy of their bill showing the full charge for services, minus any discounts based on their income. EVEN IF THE BILL IS ZERO!! EVEN IF 3RD PARTY PAYER
  • Assure effective fee collection system/process, i.e. payment plans, financial counseling to encourage payment of fees
  • Post signs that donations are accepted to assist with the cost of family planning services for citizens of the county.
  • Upon check out, ask each patient, regardless of payer source, to consider making a donation to the family planning program to assist the LHD to provide services to others in the community
  • Title X requires donations to be voluntary and without coercion

  • There are many methods of contraceptives other than prescriptive birth control, including withdrawal, natural fertility awareness (rhythm method), pregnant or seeking pregnancy, sterilization (female or male) and infertility services for Title X “methods of fertility”
  • It is essential to identify the primary method used at each FP visit type, including pregnancy test visits and ECP visits, and other program visits

Use when V25 ICD-9 is coded in any position (STD, Adult/Child, Cancer visits) and NO method is dispensed at visit,

OR a prescription is written for a method

  • MUST document on PEF in 2 digit code section to capture the primary method!!!!


The “2” digit codes are used only for Family Planning Visits where no contraceptive method is given to the patient. For reporting purposes only, these “2” digit codes are used to identify what contraceptive method the patient is using. Place a check in the box preceding the appropriate method.
