Restore Appearance, Confidence, & Function

When a patient faces the loss of a body part, it’s a profoundly life-altering experience, impacting both their physical and emotional well-being. As their trusted doctor, you hold a pivotal role in guiding them through this challenging journey. Your expertise, medical care, and unwavering support are invaluable assets in aiding your patient’s recovery. While we cannot fully restore what has been physically lost, your referral for a prosthesis can significantly enhance their quality of life and provide newfound hope for a brighter future.

For a smooth and rapid connection with us, simply call our main number at (877) 242-7951 or email directly to ggion@medicalartprosthetics.com. We will ensure that your patient has rapid and seamless access to initiate the required services, regardless of their location and choice of anaplastologist to collaborate with.

Ensuring your documentation meets insurance requirements is an essential part of the process and will help streamline the journey for everyone involved, most importantly, your patients.

Documentation Best Practices

It is important to provide an accurate ICD-10 code on all prescriptions and medical record notes for compliance with payer requirements.  Please clearly document:

  • ICD-10 codes AND descriptor narratives
  • Direct connection between diagnosis, underlying cause, and resultant condition. For example:
    • Trauma: Partial or complete traumatic amputation (of digit, of pinna, etc.)
    • Disease: Complete rhinectomy secondary to squamous cell carcinoma
    • Congenital: Absence of the right pinna secondary to failed autologous reconstruction for microtia
  • Prosthesis description and notes that all consistently support the codes you select, such as:
    • Silicone prosthetic finger to restore length of residual digit for job, keyboarding, etc.
    • Midfacial prosthesis to cover defect cavity, protect exposed nasal mucosa, restore airway, etc.
    • Implant-retained magnetic ear prosthesis to, support eyeglasses, localize sound, etc.
