Antepartum fetal surveillance is crucial in reducing the risks of fetal demise after 24 weeks of gestation. Fetal surveillance often delays the need for intervention, and prolongs gestation in pregnancies at risk for preterm delivery.
While there are specific CPT codes for the type of tests, it's not uncommon for reimbursement to be denied due to incorrect modifier use for the place of service, inadequate medical indication, or poor documentation.
Don't let your antepartum fetal surveillance tests be denied. Join coding whiz Melanie Witt, RN, CPC, COBGC, MA for this one-hour session where she will provide you with the proper tools to ensure correct coding and reimbursement for these essential tests. Melanie will also provide you with the roadmap to avoid the many pitfalls that are associated with these tests.
Here's how you'll benefit from this 60 minute session:
Who should attend? Coders, billers, practice managers and physicians in ob-gyn.
