Get the EP Reimbursement You Deserve

If you feel like your patient volume is increasing while your reimbursement is decreasing, you’re not alone. Many healthcare organizations and physicians have found themselves in this very situation. That’s why now it’s more crucial than ever before to be proactive in your coding practices and ensure your viability in the proverbial reimbursement game—especially when it comes to coding for electrophysiology (EP) studies and pacemakers.

Join expert speaker Terry Fletcher, CPC, CCC, CEMC as she walks you through the coding, rules and compliance for EP and pacemaker CPT coding. Learn the Medicare rules, along with what the Heart Rhythm Society and commercial payers are saying.

After attending this audio event, you will understand correct coding for the EP specialty, including pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), and ablations. You will also be able to use modifiers properly and bill medically necessary services along with ICD-10-CM linking. This session will give you all the tools and knowledge you need to maximize your reimbursements and reduce denials in your cardiology practice!
