International Board Certified Lactation Consultant ( IBCLC )
is the Gold Standard in lactation consulting.
A note from Pat: I began my research into 3rd Party Reimbursement to design a superbill to meet my practice needs in 2001. I started by doing an informal survey of about 30 LCs in private practice to see what they thought was important in a lactation superbill. While doing the survey, there was so much interest in a lactation superbill with up-to-date coding that I was urged to make it available to others. This resulted in the Lactation Visit Receipt Packet. The LVR Packet has been reviewed by many of my peers and can be found in Linda Smith's book “The Lactation Consultant in Private Practice: The ABCs of Getting Started”, in Jan Riordan's Breastfeeding and Human Lactation, 3rd Edition, in ILCA's "Reimbursement Tool Kit" by Marsha Walker and in Medela's Messenger issue 20.1, 2003.
Use of the LVR does not guarantee reimbursement. This tool is used as a professional receipt for lactation services which is given to the consumer to file for insurance reimbursement, however, insurance reimbursement should never be guaranteed unless the provider has a contractual agreement with the consumer's insurance company and lactation consulting services are covered benefits on the consumer's insurance policy.
The REGULAR Packet includes the Lactation Visit Receipt in a PDF so as many or as few copies as needed can be printed. You may want to print it out and take it to a printer such as Office Depot, Office Max or Staples for printing. The LVR is recommended to be printed in triplicate NCR paper (office copy, client copy and copy to be filed with insurance company). All other business forms are in WORD documents which the IBCLC can customize with her business information.
NEW to the ICD-10 Lactation Visit Receipt Packet are PDF fillable forms both for the LVR and several of the business forms which are included only in the DELUXE Packet. Each PDF fillable form is customized with your business name and phone number on it. The PDF fillable forms can be filled out on your computer, laptop, ipad, tablet or any type of electronic device with Adobe Reader. Many IBCLCs have been looking for a way to have electronic records. This provides an option where all the IBCLCs files can be saved and/or sent to their clients to print and reports sent to physicians. To receive PDF fillable forms, you must order the DELUXE Packet.
Please note insurance companies prefer electronic billing by credentialed contractual in-network providers. The LVR is ONLY a receipt of lactation services with CPT (Current Procedural Code) and ICD-10 (Diagnosis Code) coding. It may or may not be helpful to the consumer to file a claim; it is as stated above a professional receipt of service. Giving a client a receipt of service is the professional thing to do.
What others say about the LVR.....
Voted in the top 5 Best Business Investments by 2003 Private Practice Lactation Consultant Conference
"Pat Lindsey's superbill is excellent !!!! ( thank you Pat ) and It is working. I am working part-time for a Family Practice doctor who does OB. I use Pat's superbill and fax it to this docs biller. It does take me 1-2 months to get payment, however. Pat's superbill has been one of my best investments as a professional Lactation Consultant." Star Siegfried, RN, BA, IBCLC 1 June 2002
