Orthopedic surgeries can put you in a tight spot when it comes to applying the appropriate CPT® code, especially given 2012’s new rules. You do have other options: such as, including adding modifiers 59 or 22 — or using an unlisted procedure code. However, you need to meet specific requirements and information to support how much reimbursement your surgeon deserves.
Our expert presenter, Kristi Stumpf, MCS-P, CPC, COSC, ACS-OR, will show you how to get your upper extremity orthoscopic surgery claims processed the first time around. You’ll examine real coding examples and learn documentation tips. Want to know where to find specialty guidelines? We’ve got the URLs you need to bookmark.
