Product Description

Billing in-office procedures in your otolaryngology practice? You may be missing a critical step.

The good news: Your otolaryngology practice has the opportunity to perform in-office procedures such as diagnostic scopes, allergy testing, audiology testing, allergy immunization, lesion removal, simple ear procedures, diagnostic CT scans and more. The bad news: Getting paid for these services can be tricky. One small oversight in documentation, precertification, or coding can result in a denial.

Minimize your practice's chances of encountering avoidable denials by joining nationally-known otolaryngology coding and billing expert Barbara J. Cobuzzi, MBA, CPC-OTO, CPC-H, CPC-P, CPC-I, CHCC, for this 1-hour audioconference. She'll walk you through the in-office ENT coding rules and cover common snags you may encounter in your HMO's rules, physician documentation and more.

Here’s a sampling of the details you’ll learn:

  • Which ENT ancillary services are billable -- you may be leaving money on the table.
  • 3 Ways your ENT's documentation affects your ability to bill ancillary services.
  • Get the expert's take: Should I add internal CT scanning to the practice?
  • 1 Requirement you can't miss for billing CT scans plus, how to get third party payers to pay for this service.
  • The scoop on using modifiers in your otolaryngology practice. How they can help -- or hurt -- you.
  • Trusted processes you can implement to ensure your ancillary services are reimbursable.

Who should attend? Physicians, office administrators, coding managers, coders, billing managers, billers, audiologists, allergists, and non-physician practitioners.
