Product Description

Cut, Tied and Burned

Sterilization can be done by mini-laparotomy, laparoscopy, culpotomy, culdoscopy, hysteroscopy and hysterectomy...

Despite the number of codes available, it is not always clear which one to report as many physicians name a procedure such as Pomeroy - Uchida, or Adiana.

Join in on this 1-hour webinar with expert coder Melanie Witt, to learn all the nuances to sterilization coding and billing.

You'll learn how each procedure is performed and the documentation you can expect to see in the operative note for all the types of sterilization procedures.

Take a look at what Melanie will cover:

  • Before you code - you need to know tubal anatomy
  • How to correctly code for each type of sterilization procedure by the description
  • The pros and cons of the sterilization method selected, and coding limitations
  • Issues that surround coverage for some payers
  • When the physician combines sterilization with other procedures, you can still correctly code - Melanie will tell you how
