Spotlight on Hand, Wrist, Fingers: Grab Onto These Expert Coding Strategies

Do you have a handle on how to report hand & wrist surgical procedures? Do finger surgical procedures make you want to pull your hair out? You have to know all the tendons, whether they are flexors or extensors, and whether the procedure takes place in zone II.

Don’t be shackled by confusing anatomy and complicated terminology. This vital 60-minute audio conference, given by expert Margie S. Vaught, will cover procedures from basal joint arthroplasties to arthrodesis of the wrist — and much more!

Register now for this 60 minute audio conference geared totally to hand, wrist and finger procedures with the latest information from official sources along with information as to what to look for in a given operative note to support the appropriate CPT and ICD-9 coding as well as modifiers.

This session will help you:

  • Apply the latest information from official sources about how to code hand, wrist, and finger procedures
  • Highlight what anatomic locations are key in a given operative note.
  • Report basal arthroplasties with FCR sling suspension grafting.
  • Examine what is — and what isn’t — included in wrist arthroplasties.
  • Filter through non-user friendly wrist arthrodesis codes and draw the line between 25800 and 25820.
  • Find out if you should reference AAOS or CCI when confronted with bundling issues.

Ask a question at the Q&A session following the live event and get advice unique to your situation, directly from our expert speaker.
