Plastic Surgery Billing Services Michigan, MI
Although plastic surgery is generally indentified as a looks-enhancement medical procedure, in many cases it’s done to address genuine health concerns. And often a singular treatment episode may include both: measures to address health concerns (reconstruction) and improve looks (cosmetic). This tangled nature of plastic surgeries often presents a considerable challenge to patients and surgeons as surgeries done purely for cosmetic purposes are not covered under insurance while the ones performed to address genuine health issues are.
This leads to incorrect verification of insurance entitlement often leading to time spent on preparing claims for surgeries that don’t enjoy insurance eligibility or oversight of components of a surgical treatment that come under insurance coverage. Both instances affect the revenues of the plastic surgeon or the clinic of which he/she is a part.

Some of the popular procedures that our billers and coders recommend could be problem areas in your revenue leakage:
Breast Reconstruction : Although a type of plastic surgery, it is for the most part a complex reconstructive or health-related procedure, where, if the attendant health risks are not adequately addressed, the patient would go through long suffering and be faced with serious health hazards. This being the nature of the surgery, it often presents the physician with the challenge of separating the parts of the procedure that are covered by Medicaid and the parts that aren’t. Our medical billers are coders are adept in handling these complexities and helping you prepare an air-tight claim with minimal chances of denial.
Palatoplasty : A surgery to repair cleft palate, this procedure involves parts that are not purely cosmetic but reconstructive presenting the challenge to physicians or clinicians to identify such parts of the procedure as would be eligible for insurance reimbursement. Our medical billers are coders are skilled in helping you conclusively separate the parts of the procedure that have reconstructive character and therefore insurance eligibility from parts that don’t.
Blepharoplasty : A procedure to correct hooded eyelids, even though it’s cosmetic in nature, it is a surgical correction of a defect with the potential to damage a body part – the eye – and therefore reconstructive in parts at least. We help you identify the reconstructive areas of the procedure to ensure you are reimbursed for them.
Rhinoplasty (nose job): It involves correction of a part of the nose that, if not properly aligned, can affect the functioning of the nose. However, as Rhinoplasty is broadly cosmetic in nature, physicians often overlook this reconstructive element which is eligible for reimbursement.
