Product Description

Better Understanding of CPT Guidelines And Proper Use of Them Will Ensure The Reimbursement You Rightfully Deserve!

A major part of coding from CPT® is about understanding the details the American Medical Association (AMA) includes in their guidelines.

Often, buried phrases can mean the correct or the incorrect answer to a certified professional coder (CPC) exam question. To make matters even more complicated, your daily coding regimens can be different from your coding manual, because insurance carriers and geographic regions require distinct things. However, CPT® guidelines are the only national standard guidelines — which means you need to know them backwards and forwards before you can understand how insurance carriers and geographic regions’ guidelines are different.

In this informative 60 minute session, you'll review some common guidelines as well as some specific guidelines in different sections of CPT®. Our expert speaker Lynn Anderanin will give you a better understanding of CPT® guidelines and the proper use of them. This session will be especially beneficial for those who are contemplating sitting for a coding certification examination. Also, if you’re a beginner at coding, then you have come to the right place, as Lynn will be sharing some practical tips on determining the appropriate code.

This session is a must-have for anyone wanting a better understanding or full review of the CPT® manual.

Here's a look at what Lynn will cover:

  • A review of symbols used throughout CPT®
  • Detailed look at the general guidelines used in CPT®
