Product Description

The CPT 2009 Scoop on Scopes -- fresh from Chicago.

General Surgery Coders: If you didn’t get to go to the AMA’s CPT Symposium in Chicago, here’s the next best thing. Suzan Berman-Hvizdash went, and in this 60-minute audio conference, she’ll tell you all you need to know -- and only what you need to know -- to achieve optimal reimbursement and correct coding in 2009. She’ll not only tell you about the new codes, she’ll give you important instructions from Chicago about how to use them -- as well as the lowdown on whether carriers will pay. Don’t be the last to know.

2009 CPT UpdateTopics covered:

  • But how do I code for rectal tumor excision now? Suzan shows you how.
  • 6 new laparoscopy codes -- learn how to get paid NOW.
  • Insider billing techniques that will make the new codes work for you, not against you.
