Every year, the CPT® codes and guidelines are revised and updated to accommodate current terminology, technology and practice. The American Medical Association makes these updates each fall, and the changes go into effect on January 1 of the following year.
In 2018 CPT® will see hundreds of code, guideline and text changes in the codes that are universally used in the U.S. healthcare system to report services to providers, insurers and accrediting organizations. To correctly interpret and report medical procedures and services, coders need to study the AMA’s official publication, of course, but they also often need help decoding the codes.
Keeping up with these annual code changes may seem daunting, but there are things you can do to get your ducks in a row, and you can start by attending AudioEducator’s audio conferences. Presented by coding industry veterans, these sessions provide healthcare professionals tips and updates on 2018 CPT® coding changes, ICD-10 updates, guidelines on E/M, modifiers, OIG Work Plan, insights on documentation challenges, the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS), and more!
Plus, attendees will also get 1 AAPC CEU from each 2018 coding updates conference.
