Product Description

Sharpen your arthroscopic hip procedure coding knowledge.

Coding for hip replacements, hip core decompression and resurfacing procedures, and hip scopes is a real bear. In one hour orthopedic coding expert Annette Grady will teach you all of the CPT information and supporting ICD-9 documentation you need to code these services accurately. You'll walk away with a wealth of knowledge on how to successfully report hip procedures to your insurance payers, plus additional tools to help you report unlisted procedures.

What you’ll learn:

  • The best way to report femoral neck procedures, fractures, avascular necrosis and nonunions.
  • Have a femoral head resurfacing procedure AND a hip decompression? Follow these steps for optimum pay-up. 
  • Revision of total hip arthroplasties: when an infected joint is involved, and other coding challenges addressed.
  • Included -- and excluded -- items in hip scopes, according to AAOS.
  • The supporting documentation you need for those unlisted or emerging technology procedures.
  • Have medical necessity issues? These ICD-9 coding links will help you.
  • How to get your surgeon involved in the team effort of the coding process.
