about-us

Thank you for visiting ChiroCode.com!
ChiroCode was founded in 1993 by D Henry Leavitt, who lead the way in helping chiropractors with coding and reimbursement issues. He spearheaded the creation of the annual ChiroCode DeskBook, now in its 24th edition. When he passed away in 2009 his family took the reins and brought in chiropractic professionals and experts to enhance and expand the services and offerings that continue to help chiropractors and their staff get the training and confidence needed to run a successful practice. ChiroCode's products and services focus on the following areas:

Documentation:

  • Patient documentation is the foundation of every patient visit in chiropractic practices. Providers must have thorough documentation that adequately meet medical necessity requirements in order to receive and keep third-party reimbursement. Efficient documentation systems are also necessary, or providers will find themselves spending unreasonable amounts of time documenting patient exam and visit information. Though documentation requirements may seem daunting, with the help of ChiroCode, documenting correctly for new and established patient visits, consultations, daily visits and therapies, and products and supplies can all become more clearly understood and more efficient. Because documentation is what establishes and supports the need for patient care, a practice must never overlook the value of clean and accurate documentation systems.

Coding:

  • Coding includes the CPT, HCPCS, ABC, and ICD-10-CM code sets that chiropractic and other medical providers are required to use to communicate patient procedures, symptoms and conditions. Coding is also an area of great uncertainty in chiropractic which often leads to erroneous code selection and of course, provider vulnerability. ChiroCode is an industry leader in coding compliance and provides valuable training and educational resources to build practice confidence in coding.

Reimbursement:

  • Reimbursement for services rendered should be a consistent and predictable cycle in every practice. The health of a practice relies on organized and efficient reimbursement systems. Reimbursement may include: patient collections, insurance billing, patient billing, accounts receivable management, management of follow-up, appeals and re-submissions for claims. This is an area of great vulnerability for providers and should not go unaddressed. ChiroCode understands the complexity of all parts of the reimbursement cycle as well as the need for proper systems and the ability for a provider/owner to monitor this department. Providers should not leave this area of their practice to the unknown. ChiroCode can help you address the particular needs in your office reimbursement systems as one giant step forward to improving the health of your practice and reducing provider risk.

Compliance:

  • Medical practices are under increased scrutiny for healthcare fraud and abuse. Provider compliance programs are mandated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. Sound compliance plans must be implemented to serve as risk prevention and protection of practices. There are various levels of compliance, including HIPAA Privacy, HIPAA Security, OIG (Office of Inspector General), OSHA, as well as standard practice policies and procedures. Though this task is difficult to accomplish alone, with the help of ChiroCode compliance affiliates, practices are protecting their doctors, staff and patients. Practices have a responsibility to find and fix areas of risk to minimize breach and liability that follows non-compliance.
