At Lactation Practice we are passionate about IBCLCs making a living wage. We also believe that collaboration with other professionals can be beneficial for all involved. To that end, we have added a new service: Insurance Billing Consulting!

Our workshop, “Establishing a Lactation Program in the Physician’s Office” has been well attended since 2016. In the workshop we discuss “incident to” billing as well as other billing and payment scenarios.  Billing and insurance both matter if we want to ensure that physicians and lactation professionals get paid adequately for what they do AND to ensure that all families have access to lactation support. And, naturally, we all care about this very much. We have several options available for consulting.

IBCLCs in a Physician’s Office: (Consult with Renee and/or Melissa)

While many physicians are eager to provide lactation services within their practices, they just don’t know how. The billers in their busy practices may not have the time to figure out the various codes and the nuances of billing for an on-site IBCLC. Physicians, billers and office managers want to know precisely how to do this and do it correctly. If you are trying to get a lactation program off and running in a physician’s office and the billing component is vexing you, our IBCLCs in a Physicians Office consulting service can help! Some topics for discussion include:

  • Developing a contract
  • How to approach the a medical practice about collaboration
  • Incident-to billing tips
  • Consultation flow ideas
  • Thinking outside the box and brainstorming help
