Product Description

Sharpen your lesion-excision coding skills in just 1 hour.

Coding for lesion excisions is not always clear-cut. A single word in the physician’s note could mean the difference between choosing the wrong modifier and getting the payment you deserve. Join coding guru Betty A. Johnson for this 1-hour audio event where she'll teach you the strategies that’ll get you on the right track and hidden tips that’ll make your lesion-excision coding much easier.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Documentation is King: How a template will make your life easier.
  • Bundled codes – learn places to use modifiers you may have overlooked.
  • Teach your providers to speak your CPT lingo to avoid confusion and miscoding their procedures.
  • Don't let the excision site throw your coding for a loop.
  • Report multiple excisions and repairs with ease.
  • Watch out! Incision size can be a misleading measurement when choosing a lesion excision code -- find out why.

Have additional questions? You have the floor with the speaker during an interactive Q&A.

Who should attend? Coders, billers, managers, consultants, auditors and compliance personnel who deal with skin/integumentary procedures. Physicians who want to provide their coders with the notes they need to capture all reimbursement opportunities will also benefit from attending.

  • Flexible enrollment. Scheduling conflict? No problem. This session is also available on CD.
