yup we dont touch em anymore.

matty i have a lil secret for you. doctors reduce their bills to the client after we settle and you cut the check. lol like you dont know that already thoo. but thats it, thats the only unwritten trick we have.

FD - your probably ref to CPT codes, which as collusus touches on, the more CPT codes a client/patient has, the more a computer printout shows the injuries and treatment, the more they will get paid.

we used to write out the treatments rec'd in our demands but found that adjusters werent reading and considering every treatment all the time. with CPT codes, the adjuster just plugs in the codes or counts them and the adjuster has a full data-code driven idea of the treatment. is my understanding of this correct?

so freakin ready to blow a hole thru the door and get outta here. co workers are dropping like flies.

Any treatment over $1000 requires pre-auth. The CPT codes are required for billing purposes only.

I used to work in a bank with all women and I fought with them every day over the damn A/C. They liked it stifling hot. I loved it when customers complained because I could turn to the women and say see, it's too damn hot in here.

yep.. bro in law's family got out of ins work at their body shop because of the requirements and fees from the computerized systems.. restorations mostly now

It's called a billing dept., and they use what's called the NY W/C Fee Schedule. There are agreed upon rates for every code.

Oh and saying "your moma" out of nowhere and out of context is totally retarded...especially if the co-worker you're saying it to is in his mid 40's.

Got to agree with you here, this drives me fucking nuts. Like, I have a fork in my goddamned hand, what is so fucking complicated? It's even better when they walk up on you start asking their questions, and then go, "oh, you're eating lunch, sorry to interrupt" and continue on interrupting. I wait til their finished, then look them dead in the eye for about 20-30 seconds, long enough to be a good uncomfortable silence, and then answer their question before turning back to my lunch without waiting for them to ask follow ups...

Re: The Workplace

I got a big scare at the office today (which is where I still am and I think I'm about to lose my mind)....

For a couple of hours our company's IT people had a ton of websites on lockdown. I obviously couldn't check my yahoo fantasy baseball team but I also couldn't check my Yahoo email. I couldn't get on the Post's sports page or log onto my second home, The Warpath. I couldn't get onto a client's website since it's a retail store. Basically I couldn't get anywhere, except for espn.com, which was weird.

I can understand the fantasy sports websites and ebay, amazon, etc. but Yahoo email? Our company handbook specifically says it is ok to check person email accounts from company computers as long as it doesn't interfere with work.

Anyway, all back to normal... for now.

I know it's not a big deal but this kind of thing really pisses me off. Our company was hit hard because of the economy, just like everyone else, so this is one of those little things that just makes you say "seriously, this is what our corporate office is worried about?"

Did they have a virus scare? Our network has been on shutdown a few times cause some dumbass had a an infected VMWare image and IT couldn't locate it.
