X-ray submission

Are you submitting your original x-rays for documentation to insurance companies? If so, you are making a big mistake. First of all, the films can be lost. either by the insurance company or in the mail. Which leaves you in a bind if you need to submit again, either for a re-submission to the same insurance company or a 2nd (if COB is involved). A larger problem rears its ugly head if you are audited, a law suit develops or the State Board wants this patient's records.

The solution: 1) use double film packets 2) only send out duplicates or 3) implement a digital x-ray system in your office where a duplicate set of films are only a mouse-click away.
