Coding for heart catheterization is anything but simple or straightforward – and be sure to expect the coding to get more complicated in 2019. To ensure full payment and total compliance, you have to master the big changes. And that includes knowing how to code for the different access points (femoral, brachial, radial), as well as the different cardiac cath methods.
In this session, cardiology coding guru Terry Fletcher will reveal the expert techniques for making your cardiac cath and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) coding more accurate and less frustrating. Learn proper coding for right and left (R&L) heart caths versus Swan Ganz Catheter, left heart catheterization (LHC) versus coronary angiography (Cors) only, and cardiac caths and graft injections. Discover the correct ways to append modifiers in the cath lab to ensure rightful payment, too.
After attending this specialty-specific session, you’ll know who is (and isn’t) reimbursing for PCI and fractional flow reserve (FFR) versus instantaneous wave-free ratio (IFR). You’ll gain a better understanding of the coronary anatomy for PCI, and learn about CPT® versus Medicare rules for benzathine penicillin G (BPG) injections and PCIs. You’ll learn the rules for the highly-weighted code for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), as well as the moderate conscious sedation coding (with tips) for 2018 and 2019.
Here’s a sample of what this session will cover:
