Down Coding Petition

Down-coding Petition

Down-coding is a practice of third-party payers in which the benefits code has been changed to a less complex or lower cost procedure.

Provider-administered intravenous and injectable biologics require complex preparation, administration, and close monitoring of the patient to detect and address adverse reactions. Therefore, these medications should be reimbursed under complex administration codes accordingly.

If your office or center has been impacted by down-coding, help NICA continue to advocate on your behalf by filling out the survey below.
