Product Description

All you Need to Know Regarding Specifications and Coding Requirements for Electrophysiology

This session by expert speaker Terry Fletcher talks about the following coding requirements for Electrophysiology:

  • Coding discussion of Electrophysiology Studies and components
  • EP Ablations and the crosswalk to diagnosis coding
  • Ablation adds on codes. You will know the CPT direction and Medicare rules
  • Pacemaker coding: implants, generator changes and upgrades
  • BiV Pacemaker coding- make sure you are capturing all of your codes
  • Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD's) and testing and new modifier rules

You will get to understand various Medicare rules, get operative note examples, CPT references, real-life examples, patient scenarios, CCI edit discussion, crosswalk tool, and Medicare Transmittals in the session. Also, the reimbursement for PM/ICD procedures will be looked into, assuring that the attendees maximize their billing. You will also get updates on recent Medicare transmittals on the KX modifier.

Session Highlights:  

  • PVI (Pulmonary Vein Isolation) ablations and an addition separate site ablated. What are my options?
  • Pacemaker and ICD device checks. Payer Rules on who can perform these services in the office setting
  • Device checks in the hospital for remote services
  • Coding for "pocket revisions" vs. "pocket relocation"- Do we have any options for a PM "Revision" in 2014?
  • Mapping codes, 3D vs regular
  • Transseptal approach for EP services. We will clarify when you can use the transseptal cath and when you cannot.
  • Can we code for sinus venography during an EP study, PM implant or BiV implant?
  • Triggering Arrhythmia
  • EKG/ECG, Holters, Event monitors
  • EP Studies
  • Mapping with examples
  • Transseptal puncture
  • Intravenous Drug Infusion
  • Ablations – Catheter ablations, AV Node ablations, Focal ablation procedures
  • Examples of ablations and EP studies
  • Coding for pacemakers, defibrillators
  • 2015 revised codes for EP
