Tools for Accepting Insurance
The following is a list of things we think are necessary for accepting insurance. Please click on the links below as they help keep this website afloat :). Yes, we make a few pennies on these purchases, but we would never recommend something we don’t use or want to use…
Of course, if you are billing insurance and you are an acupuncturist you simply MUST get our book. It isn’t outrageously priced and it is a wealth of information. You can get it here:
Playing the Game: A Step-by-Step Approach to Accepting Insurance as an Acupuncturist
And while we are talking about books, let’s not forget Dr. Greg’s pharmacology and drug-herb interaction book. This tome is specially geared to acupuncturists and herbalists and what they need to know about drugs. It’s big, heavy, and a little costy, but it is the only pharm book you will need: Integrative Pharmacology: Combining Modern Pharmacology with Integrative Medicine
For Almost Everything
We love Amazon. And you can get almost anything there. Please support us by clicking on the link below before shopping at Amazon. We get a few pennies and everything penny helps us to keep this website going. Thanks! Amazon.com
Every insurance biller needs coding books. There are two types of coding systems we need to be aware of: International Classification of Disease (ICD) and Current Procedural Terminology. ICD code books are going to be mandatory for anyone accepting insurance. We recommend that you get a larger one that has thorough descriptions of each code. Sometimes the title of a code does not reflect the reality of the code, so a book with nice descriptions can really prevent one from getting in trouble. We recommend:
ICD-10-CM 2019: The Complete Official Codebook.
While most insurance billers will need a CPT code reference book, if you are an acupuncturist, our book contains all the relevant CPT codes. If, however, you would like a full CPT code book, we recommend:
CPT 2019 (CPT / Current Procedural Terminology (Professional Edition)).
