Medical Necessity Tips on Documentation to Prove it



This session is designed for physicians, medical billers and coders, to help recognize that words and the specificity of diagnosis selection is key to proving medical necessity.  This session will cover:

  • Medical necessity is the “overarching criterion” for services – What does that mean?
  • How can a few words make the difference?
  • ICD-10 code selection can make it easier
  • Having trouble with prior authorizations – Are they being denied for medical necessity?
