How to bill botox for hyperhidrosis

If you’re a dermatologist who specializes in hyperhidrosis, you might be wondering how to bill botox for hyperhidrosis.

The good news is that there are specific codes that dermatologists can use when billing for treatment of hyperhidrosis. The bad news is that the codes aren’t as straightforward as you might think.

In this article, we’ll go over those codes, so check out the link below!

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating. It can be debilitating to those who suffer from it, and can lead to embarrassment and low self-esteem. Luckily, there are treatments available that can help you achieve a more normal lifestyle.

Botox is one of the most popular ways to treat hyperhidrosis, and has been shown in clinical studies to reduce sweating by up to 50%. But how much does botox cost? And how do you bill botox for hyperhidrosis?

Treating hyperhidrosis with botox is usually done in two sessions: one session for each armpit. The first session involves injecting about 25 units of botulinum toxin into each armpit. The second session involves injecting about 25 units into each armpit again, three months later.

For insurance companies, this means that they will only cover half of the cost of your treatment – 75% if you have high deductibles or coinsurance plans. To make sure your insurance company pays for as much of your treatment as possible, make sure you get an itemized receipt from your provider every time they inject you with botox!
