Product Description

Get your doc in the loop: these simple op note tweaks are key to your orthopedic reimbursement.

You get documentation from your surgeon with a diagnosis for "finger fracture" -- and now you have to guess at the most accurate ICD-9 without knowing how the injury occurred or if there were late effects. Sound familiar? Turn this trend around by joining Lynn Anderanin for this 1-hour audio conference where she will cover the dos and don'ts of orthopedic documentation. You'll walk away with tools to support medical necessity, know how to juggle multiple fractures, E-codes, and more -- so you can get the reimbursement you deserve. And remember -- with ICD-10 around the corner, you'll need more detailed documentation than ever before.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Documentation checklist: What EACH physician needs to back up his work -- and get paid.
  • Tried-and-true methods to support medical necessity in complex cases.
  • Injection confusion clarified: How many ICD codes do you really need?
  • Getting down to the nitty-gritty: Nail the highest level of specificity with Lynn's figure example.
  • Tackle late effects with these E-code musts.
  • Aftercare treatment — have you switched to the correct codes?
  • ICD-10: A brief glimpse at what this means to all of those modifiers and your documentation.

Have additional questions? You have the floor with the speaker during an interactive Q&A.

Who should attend? Providers, auditors, coders, billers, and assistants in orthopedic practices.

Your registration includes:

  • Flexible enrollment. Scheduling conflict? No problem. This session is also available on CD.
  • Expert answers to your tough questions during the interactive Q&A period.
  • Complimentary attendee package, including the speaker's complete presentation handouts. Keep this quick reference tool close by for future use.
  • One low price for all the staff you can stuff into a conference room.
