Neurology is a branch of medicine that deals with the disorders, diagnosis, and treatment of the nervous system. It covers all diseases affecting the central and peripheral nervous systems.
Neurologists and Neurosurgeons specialize in treating diseases of the nervous system either through non-surgical or surgical methods, respectively. They reflect an immense sense of knowledge and eye for detail as they cover more than one area of neurology such as pain management, neuromuscular, sleep medicine, stroke and epilepsy. There is also significant overlap with behavioral and mental health as the two disciplines interlink greatly.
Neurology billing and coding is as intricate as the specialty itself. It is almost like a subspecialty of Evaluation & Management. Medical Coders face the daunting tasks of applying the right code from over a hundred codes available for coding neurology and neuromuscular tests. In addition, neurology billing & coding requires a strong knowledge of the place of service rules as neurologists see patients in multiple areas such as hospitals, offices, and care centers. In neurology RCM, failing to audit the smallest error can lead to a large loss of money for the practice.
