Expert Insights on the 2018 Gastroenterology Coding Updates

In November, there will be updates for CPT®, HCPCS and Medicare products with proposed rules in anticipation for final rulings. New and changed ICD-10 codes were also released on October 1st. The Medical offices, billers and coders will need to know all of this to make 2018 a successful and profitable year.

Join this session where coding compliance consultant Jill Young, will go in-depth with gastroenterology. She will address all the new coding and billing techniques you’ll need to learn and what, if any, changes to reimbursement you can expect. Jill will address particular issues involving CMS’s final rule release information for its OPPS and IPPS and the effect on gastroenterology practices, including clarifications to the severity of diverticulitis codes, and distinctions in cholecystitis to accurately characterize the severity of the disease. All of this information is crucial to staying current and compliant in your billing of GI procedures in 2018.

Let Jill help you feel secure as you enter 2018 that you are billing with the most up-to-date diagnoses and procedure codes, including any changes to moderate sedation billing. By studying the RVUs for procedures and endoscopy billing rules, you will be able to analyze your reimbursement trends for 2018 – before the new year even begins.
