Welcome to your billing and coding weekly solutions by American Acupuncture Council Network (AAC).
Are acupuncturist affected by the federal vaccine mandates for healthcare workers?
As per the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS):
“The staff vaccination requirements apply to Medicare and Medicaid-certified provider and supplier types (collectively, “facilities”) that are regulated under the Medicare health and safety standards known as Conditions of Participation (CoPs), Conditions for Coverage (CfCs), or Requirements.”
Under this definition, the federal mandate does not include acupuncturists.
Special Note: Some states do have mandates that may require vaccination or testing (i.e., Illinois has a mandate that healthcare workers must be vaccinated or tested weekly and the state of Washington has a mandate similar).
AAC understands billing with incorrect acupuncture CPT and ICD codes can lead to claim rejections and delays in payments, which can have a devastating impact on generating revenue and keeping you in business.
