I have a good physician friend who is an MD and she would like to start applying some basic OMT techniques for her patients. She has learned some techniques from me teaching her. In order for an MD to be reimbursed, do the insurance companies look for some type of proof that the MD has been to an osteopathic CME course? Or is being taught by another D.O. sufficient? Or does this really depend on the individual insurance companies and the contract negotiated through them? From the reading that I have done, it looks like the general consensus is that MD's can bill for the techniques regardless of formal OMT training, as long as they document correctly. Thanks for any information.
