Product Description

Say farewell to troublesome DEXA edits.

The latest version of Medicare's National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) is here. New CCI edits come out every quarter -- so it’s up to you to know how to implement each and every one of them. Ignoring CCI edits can cost your practice or facility hundreds of thousands of dollars. But for once, there's some good news from NCCI. Thanks to Version 14.1, effective April 1, 2008, you can once again report DEXA and absorptiometry codes 77080-77081 and 77083 with brachytherapy codes 77750-77799. But CMS didn't stop with its deletion — as usual, most of the changes in this version of CCI were new edits to the already expansive CCI edit database.

Make sure you know every new CCI edit that affects your coding practice. Attend this vital, information-packed conference with expert speaker Tina Landskroener, CMBS-I, CPC, CCS-P, and, in just 60 minutes, hear everything you need to know to stay compliant, save time and money, and increase clean reimbursement.

We've got the full list of restricted code pairs! You’ll hear about:

  • How CCI hones in on vent management: See what no modifier can separate in pulmonolgy claims.
  • E/M watch: Learn about new bundles for hydration codes.
  • CCI takes aim at 87641 (Staphylococcus aureus). Find out how.
  • The final answer on billing indicator dilution study codes with anesthesia.
  • How transmyocardial thranscatheter closure codes are now bundled into dozens of cardiology codes.
  • When you can use a modifier to unbundle these new edits ... and when you can't.
