What’s the Best Way to Code Surgical Breast Procedures?


If you’ve searched for accurate, first-hand information on how to properly code surgical breast procedures, you’ve likely noticed that this isn’t exactly easy to find. Nor is it easy to find what you need for good clinical documentation to support medical necessity for breast procedures.

Get all this and much more in this live webinar by coding guru Lori-Lynne Webb, CPC, CCS-P, CCP, CHDA, CDIP, COBGC, AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer. Gain a better understanding of the differences between “screening” versus “diagnostic” versus “therapeutic” when it comes to determining the best way to code and get reimbursed for surgical breast procedures. Also, learn the correct CPT and ICD-10 coding information for surgical breast procedures, including radiology and pathology.

After attending this informative session, you’ll walk away with first-hand coding information for breast procedures for both men and women, including “cosmetic” breast procedures and how this impacts your financial bottom line. Learn the essentials for good clinical documentation to support medical necessity for all types of surgical breast procedures – regardless of whether the procedure is medically indicated or if it’s considered “cosmetic.” Also, learn how to tackle challenges in pre-authorization, prior medical intervention requirements by payers, and denial issues.

This how-to session will cover:

  • How to ensure the clinical documentation is aligned with what you will need to code and bill regarding the breast procedures – including the assistant surgeon role, pathology, and cosmetic surgery documentation;
  • The importance of using the correct ICD-10-CM and CPT codes for pre-authorizations, surgeries, appeals, etc.;
  • The reasons and rationale for the different types of breast procedures;
  • The importance of coding with the operative report, radiology reports, AND the pathology report; and
  • How to best get your deserved reimbursement with pre-auth, correct coding/modifiers, and appeals.

Who Should Attend

This session will benefit physicians who code for themselves, midwives and mid-level providers, clinical nurse specialists, support clinical staff, coders, billers, denial insurance managers, and office managers.
