The information provided in this document is current as of January 2021.
Nuwellis provides this information for your convenience and for educational purposes only. It does not constitute legal advice or a recommendation regarding clinical practice or how-to code, complete, bill, or submit any particular claim for payment. Information provided is gathered from third-party sources and is subject to change without notice due to frequently changing laws, rules, and regulations. Nuwellis disclaims any responsibility for claims submitted by providers. The provider has the sole responsibility to determine medical necessity and to submit appropriate codes and charges that accurately describe the service provided to a patient based on a patient’s medical condition. The information provided in this summary is not a guarantee of coverage in any individual case. The key in all coding and billing to payers is to be truthful and not misleading and make full disclosures to the payer about the product and the procedures associated with its use when seeking reimbursement for any product or procedure. Providers should follow payer-specific billing and coding requirements and contact the payer if they have questions. Nuwellis makes no guarantee that the use of this information will prevent differences of opinion or disputes with Medicare or other payers as to the correct form of billing or the amount that will be paid to providers of service. Please note that the existence of a code for a procedure does not guarantee coverage or payment. Where reimbursement is sought for use of a product that may be inconsistent with, or not expressly specified in, the FDA cleared or approved labeling (e.g., instructions for use, operator’s manual or package insert), consult with your billing advisors or payers on handling such billing issues. Some payers may have policies that make it inappropriate to submit claims for such items or related services.
