      I'm not in LA, but, I do know that Medicare does not pay for consults at the request of Chiropractors. Typically the PCP, primary physician, will also accept the referral/referring letter for the consults.

      I haven't been seeing your BCBS issue, then again, I'm in NY.

      The coding issues ... I 'm not sure about. We have been seeing a ton of refund requests also, but mostly for coordination of benefits issues ie/ the insurance company that paid is suddenly stating that the other insurance company should have been primary. Sometimes two years later.

      I would also like to know the statute of limitations on that; I believe it is three years, but I'm not sure.
