2014 Shoulder Procedure Coding Updates

2014 Shoulder Procedure Coding


Get the Nuts And Bolts of 2014 Changes to Shoulder Coding

By the term ‘revision’ to an arthroplasty means the patient had a total joint replacement in the past, and is now having it revised or updated. In 2014, we have two new codes for revision of total shoulder and two new codes for revision of total elbow prosthesis.

Join Margie Scalley Vaught - CPC, CPC-H, CPC-I, CCS-P, PCE, MCS-P, ACS-EM, ACS-OR, in this 60 minute audio conference, where she will go through the 2014 changes regarding shoulder coding such as the new revision arthroplasty codes. She will also discuss the ongoing issues with shoulder arthroscopy procedures and how CCI guidelines are starting to limit the number of codes you will be able to report. And if that was not enough it appears some of the fracture treatment without manipulation might be limited per NCCI guidelines. You won’t want to miss this webinar if you do upper extremity procedures.
