Product Description

Should you code for a formal interpretation or a review? The difference can cost your ED big.

Don’t let small coding mistakes keep your ED from receiving big diagnostic study reimbursements.

Join nationally-known ED coding expert Caral Edelberg to review common diagnosis tests, from x-rays to EKGs, and their payer guidelines.

You'll learn important tricks of the trade to help you navigate those tricky documentation and coding rules — and bring in every penny your ED deserves.

Topics covered:

  • What constitutes an interpretation. Discover the biggest mistakes coders make with this determination.
  • What many coders skip when billing for x-ray interpretations. Hint: Reporting the work may not be enough. Rhythm strips vs. EKGs: Learn the important differences between these studies.
  • Tactful ways to give your physicians important documentation feedback ... that'll get them paid.  

Who should attend? Coding professionals, emergency physicians, mid-level providers and billing staff responsible for managing medical necessity denials.
