Code-a-Graphics

Miscommunication and denied claims have frustrated many surgeons, patients, and insurance companies. Code-a-Graphics, developed by Laurel Ferris Consultants, Inc. for the AAFPRS, helps eliminate the communication gap between surgeons and insurance reviewers.

The Code-a-Graphics kit is specifically aimed at remedying carrier denials of functional facial plastic surgery. The most frequently reviewed facial plastic codes are explained in plain English on a double-sided sheet.

On the front side, the functional and cosmetic indications are listed along with the ICD-9 codes. On the back side of each page, a series of captioned anatomical drawings and photos put words into pictures. Ten copies of each code sheet are provided in a three-ring binder along with instructions on effective appeals prior to authorization and resubmission techniques.
