Reimbursement

Home infusion therapy billing and coding is complex. Home infusion therapy is paid differently by public and private payers. Public reimbursement mechanisms havenít kept pace with the private sector and Medicare does not pay for most home infusion therapies.

Both public and private payers require documentation such as plans of care, doctorís orders, and nurses notes before sending payment. Home infusion therapy claims take longer to be paid than any other sector of healthcare.
