Product Description

Device companies could be giving you the wrong coding information for diagnostic nerve studies.

Over the past few years there have been new medical devices on the market that have opened up the door for primary care providers to perform in-office nerve conduction tests. However, it's also true that some medical device companies have not been the most reliable sources for accurate information on compliant coding.

Then, there are documentation issues to support the medical necessity for the diagnostic tests.

Join coding expert Marvel Hammer for this 60-minute session where she'll clear up confusion over mistaken coding advice, show you what's usually missing from documentation, and walk you through coding best practices that'll get your nerve conduction studies the reimbursement they deserve.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Clear up confusion over neuromuscular electrodiagnostic testing acronyms and terminology
  • Learn different components of the nervous system anatomy
  • Accurate ICD-9 coding to identify the distinctive diagnoses, conditions, signs and symptoms
  • Learn the differences of the individual nerve conduction diagnostic tests… and how to compliantly code them
  • CMS supervision requirements for diagnostic studies -  What most coders miss
  • Discover how to avoid denials with nerve conduction testing and coding with modifiers
  • CPT codes and Appendix J: Learn to how to appeal payer denials for diagnostic testing
