The above insurance codes are provided for the benefit of our clients to precipitate reimbursement for their personal colonic hygiene. Always consult with your medical physician prior to making significant changes to your health routine and incorporating new health practices. We also encourage our clients to check not only with their insurance companies but with their employers regarding flex-spending account policies for reimbursement of colon hydrotherapy when prescribed by a physician.
Upon obtaining a prescription for colon irrigation “As needed” or “As necessary to correct bowel response” it is our clients responsibility to submit insurance claim forms with out invoice/statement (identifying that the colonic irrigation procedure was performed at our office as directed by the order of your physician) and your original physician prescription attached for reimbursement.
Additionally, it is helpful for your physician if you contact your health insurance company to clarify which CPT code or codes they accept for colonic irrigation. Other CPT codes may be available from your health insurance company for medical procedures such as a colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, etc. wherein a colonic prior to the procedure is deemed necessary.
