CPT code S9083 is widely utilized within the healthcare industry to refer to “Global Fee Per Diem.”
This billing arrangement used by healthcare providers covers an array of services delivered on one day rather than billing separately for every individual service provided to a patient.
CPT codes (Current Procedural Terminology codes) are standardized codes managed by the American Medical Association (AMA), used to accurately describe medical, surgical and diagnostic services provided to patients.
Their use ensures consistency in billing as well as effective communication among healthcare providers, insurance companies and other parties involved with reimbursement processes for healthcare reimbursements.
CPT code S9083 identifies global fee per diem billing, meaning all services provided on one particular day to a patient are combined and invoiced as one charge rather than being itemized separately for each service.
This form of billing may be especially beneficial when multiple services, procedures or treatments occur simultaneously during one day.
CPT code S9083 aims to streamline healthcare billing procedures and make them more straightforward for both healthcare providers and patients. By consolidating multiple services into one charge, this reduces billing statement complexity and could potentially facilitate easier reimbursement procedures for ongoing or routine care at specific healthcare facilities like a hospital or skilled nursing facility.
Healthcare providers and billing personnel must use accurate CPT codes in their billing process in order to be transparent, accurate, and compliant with industry standards.
CPT code S9083, commonly known as global fee per diem billing, simplifies healthcare service provision by bundling multiple services provided to one patient per day into a single charge.
This approach improves efficiency while streamlining statements and guaranteeing reimbursement of healthcare services provided.
