*A signed Business Associate Agreement (BAA) is required prior to receipt of protected health information (PHI). Under the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996, a HIPAA business associate agreement (BAA) is a mandatory contract between a HIPAA-covered entity and a HIPAA business associate (BA) and is required whenever a contractor provides functions, activities, or services involving the use and/or disclosure of PHI. This contract protects the personal health information in accordance with HIPAA guidelines.

The information provided by Acelity is general reimbursement information only. It is not legal advice, nor is it advice about how to code, complete, or submit any particular claim for payment. Although we supply this information for your convenience, it does not represent a guarantee, promise or statement by Acelity concerning guarantee of payment or levels of reimbursement.  The information provided is not intended to increase or maximize reimbursement. It is the provider’s responsibility to determine how to complete a claim form, select appropriate codes, amounts to charge, modifiers used, and ultimately what is submitted for services rendered. Payors or their regional offices may have their own coding and reimbursement requirements and policies. Before filing any claims, providers should verify current requirements and policies with the payor.
