Up Your Diagnostic-Related Pay with This Orthopedic Note Makeover
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.
