Product Description

Keep Your Cardiology Coding on the Cutting Edge


Every year, you can count on CMS to throw a plethora of coding changes at you – and this year is no different. Gear up for hundreds of coding changes in the 2019 ICD-10-CM and CPT® coding updates. ICD-10 will have approximately 473 code changes (effective Oct. 1, 2018), and CPT® more than 150 new, revised and deleted codes in 2019.

Get up to speed on all the coding changes that will impact cardiology coding in this information-packed live webinar. Let cardiology coding guru Terry Fletcher walk you through the CPT® and ICD-10 code updates, as well as all the other 2019 Medicare updates that will affect the cardiology specialty – with specific clinical examples. In particular, you’ll need to prepare for the most significant changes for evaluation and management (E&M) codes in the last 20 years.

After attending this instructive session, you will have all the tools and knowledge you need to confidently code cardiology services in 2019. You’ll know exactly what you need to update your physicians for CPT®, ICD-10-CM, and Medicare updates. Don’t miss out on these crucial changes, because every single coding revision will impact your reimbursement in the coming year.
