Product Description

Understand the Current Definition of “Rupture” & Learn to Correctly Code for Endovascular Repair


In 2018, you’ve had to deal with major changes for coding endovascular repair procedures. CMS deleted multiple surgical codes (34800-34806, 34825-34826, 34900) and radiological supervision and interpretation (S&I) codes (75952-75954) and replaced them with new codes describing endovascular repair of the abdominal aorta and/or iliac arteries. While you’re still likely mastering these huge coding revisions, you also need to gear up for the coming CPT® updates for 2019.

Join cardiology coding expert Terry Fletcher to get a handle on the 2018 changes and learn the latest tweaks to these codes for the coming year. The new codes are assigned not only for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair, but also for treatment of pseudoaneurysm, dissection, penetrating ulcer, or traumatic disruption of the aorta or iliac arteries. Learn the two main keys to selecting the correct endovascular repair codes: 1) the clinical indication; and 2) the type of device that is placed.

This session will teach you how to correctly code for endovascular repair, and understand the current definition of “rupture.” Learn the clinical indication for AAA repairs, which plays a crucial role in reimbursement. Reduce your denials and maximize your reimbursement with step-by-step coding instructions, real case studies, guidance on modifiers, and a clear and concise definition of what the AAA repair is. Plus, understand when to code extension codes for endoprosthesis and when you can code bilateral versus unilateral access separately.
