CPT Codes available for use with the Equilibrate System
The ability to document the progress of care over the course of therapy enables the caregiver to demonstrate improvement to the patient as well as to insurance companies and Medicare. Delivering evidence-based care with documented progress is the new paradigm in the health care industry. Balance Engineering supports this paradigm by providing key tools that help caregivers not only to provide high quality care to their patients but also to meet the requirements for efficient insurance reimbursement. Insurance companies and Medicare are reimbursing hospitals, clinics and other care facilities for evaluation, assessment and therapeutic services today. The Equilibrate System was designed to leverage those existing CPT codes so caregivers can seek reimbursement for utilizing the technology and turn the tool into a revenue-generating device.
