The CPT manual for 2020 is out, but as coders and billers are discovering, some of the primary codes for the new add-on codes 20700-20705 are not in it. That’s a potential headache for those seeking to document total knee and total hip replacement operations.
Don’t stress—expert coder Margie Scalley Vaught has your back. Join Vaught in this webinar to learn how to use the new 20700-20705 codes and how to code for revision of total joints when they are staging the repairs. Vaught will also give you the intel you need to help your surgeons place the correct documentation and provide insight on the differences between the new codes.
After attending this live audio event, you will know what to do about articulating and non-articulating spacers and how to get answers from your private contracted payers on how they are dealing with the new changes. Plus, Vaught will provide reference material from AAOS, the AMA 2020 CPT Symposium, and CPT Assistants. Don’t stress—here’s the help you need to code with confidence.
