Understand The Correct Coding Initiative In Global Surgical Package With Brad Hart

Surgical package bundling and unbundling is one of the challenging issues faced by physicians and billers/coders. When understood and managed appropriately, practices have the opportunity to reduce claim denials, successfully appeal claims that have been inappropriately bundled and obtain the maximum reimbursement to which providers are entitled.

In this informative session by speaker Brad Hart, MBA, MS, CMPE, CPC, COBGC, attendees will be provided with a number of charts and tables that will help them define  what is included in the global surgical package, with a few exclusions as well. They will be given a listing of modifiers also, which will ultimately help them identify services for the task of separate payment that are typically part of a global package.

At the end of this session, the attendees will be able to:

  • Explain the components of the global surgical package, including the difference between CPT and Medicare guidelines for surgical services, and much more
  • Explain the meaning of “separate procedure” and its effect on the bundling of services
  • Describe the Correct Coding Initiative and its effect on the bundling of services
  • Describe the special rules for reporting endoscopic and open procedures
  • Explain correct reporting for lysis of adhesions
  • Understand the reporting of services when one physician does not perform all elements of the global surgical package

Who should attend? All surgical specialties, physicians, billing and coding staff.
