Product Description

Cardiologists, prepare for a major PCI overhaul for CPT 2013.

It’s not all sunshine and daisies for cardiology practices in 2013, although our practice gets a “gift”, in which we can now code for additional branches in the same Artery. But, the specialty will be heavily impacted with code changes for 2013. Make sure you avoid making any coding mishaps starting January 1, as you may be taking a reimbursement hit.

CPT® 2013 took aim, and you’ve got a slew of new and revised codes. These include transforming how you report percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) codes, a revision to cardiac cath code instructions, and new coding for EP studies.

Join this enlightening 60-minute audio event, presented by expert speaker Terry Fletcher, CPC, CCC, CEMS, CMC, CMSCS, CCS-P, CCS, and you’ll get tips & strategies for 2013. Terry will provide you coding examples to try and crosswalk to 2013. You’ll get new code reference documents for future use, and tools to assist your practice in creating a charge capture form. Terry will also give a snap shot to ICD-10 coding.

This session will help you:
