Product Description

Coding Errors: What can go wrong? What can you do?

If you don’t want your payment claims to be delayed for months because of coding and billing errors, you need an expert to guide you in the ‘art’ and ‘science’ of making “clean claims.” If you know about the most common coding errors, you’ll know where to look for and how to prevent them.

This webinar by expert speaker Kim Garner-Huey, MJ, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO will help you do that exactly in just 60 minutes. She will review the most common coding errors and tell you how to avoid them with definitive resources. You will also learn how to use the coding books along with bundling edits to accurately describe the services performed.
