Product Description

Brush up on these fundamentals and code orthopedic services with confidence.

Knowledge is power -- and that's certainly the case with orthopedic coding. The more you know about the anatomical structures referenced in the surgeon's notes and applying the appropriate codes and modifiers to these services, the better your results when you submit claims. And in these days when money's tight, you need to be at the top of your game.

You could be costing your practice thousands in deserved reimbursement if you’re rusty on musculoskeletal basics and foggy on ortho coding rules.

Let orthopedic coding expert Lynn Anderanin refresh your skills in this 60 minute seminar. She'll take you on a guided tour through the musculoskeletal system and other relevant structures that may appear in orthopedic procedures and will teach you about the modifiers and diagnosis codes you should be using with your CPT codes.

Here’s a sampling of what to expect:

  • Discover how the cardiovascular, nervous, and integumentary sections of the CPT coding manual may apply in orthopedics.
  • Modifiers make all the difference: Take-home tips on using modifiers to ensure that all procedures are reimbursed.
  • Coding rules insurance carriers expect you to know.
  • Crucial fracture repair treatments you can’t afford to miss.
  • Get the basics on open versus arthroscopic procedures.
  • Apply the right ICD-9 codes for fracture and repair services.
  • Emerging technology and new procedures that you could be coding soon.
