How To Prepare Emergency Kits

Tip: Those who want extra protection from smoke can use the “respirators” or masks that are certified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The only types of masks that should be used are labeled with N95 or P100. The California Department of Public Health explained that the filter material rated 95 will capture “at least 95 percent of very small particles.”

Tip: Water Storage Containers should be BPA Free

Preventive Care

Preventive Care services are reported with diagnosis and procedure codes.

Medical Coding:
CPT - Report procedures & services (example lab work)
HCPCS - Report procedures, services, supplies, drugs, equipment
ICD - Report diagnoses …diseases, signs/symptoms, findings

Info Source

Preventive care services are reported with diagnosis codes (ICD) and procedure codes (CPT and HCPCS) which identify the services as preventive and not for treatment of injury or illness.

Preventive care services submitted with diagnosis codes that represent treatment of illness or injury will be paid as applicable under normal medical benefits rather than preventive care coverage.

Preventive care services are dependent upon claim submission using preventive diagnosis and procedure codes in order to be identified and covered as preventive care services

Additional Preventive Care Services: Adult wellness examinations, prostate cancer screening, double contrast barium enema for colorectal cancer screening, digital breast tomosynthesis for breast cancer screening, and venipuncture associated with preventive laboratory screenings are covered under the benefit as preventive care services.

Info Source

Providers must use correct coding to ensure prompt, accurate processing of claims. Providers must follow the claims submission process. The claims process should include the use of industry standard coding sets, such as CPT, HCPCS, and ICD.
