|Insurance Update - 09.21.16|
Buckeye Health Plans has lowered their reimbursement. They sent a letter out to each provider giving them the chance to rebuttal the lowering of the reimbursement. There was little to no response received therefore, they moved forward with the reduction. After speaking to them we know that multiple specialties have been effected. We are working to see if anything can be done to reverse this effect.
UnitedHealthcare (UHC) has been doing overpayments. They are aware of the situation and working on fixing their system. We have reached out to UHC so stay tuned for more information about what to do with any overpayments you are receiving.
Anthem is denying manual therapy codes and the reason given is it’s not covered by the person who performed the service. We have contacted Anthem and are awaiting a response for this denial. We will publish an update as soon as we receive one from Anthem.
