Just when you thought you could use the new ICD-9 codes to support your obstetric ultrasound claims, some payers have limited the number of ultrasounds per pregnancy -- and others now require special certification to bill for them at all. Let our expert coding consultant Melanie Witt, RN, CPC-OBGYN, MA, arm you with the information you need to overcome reimbursement objections and correctly bill for each procedure so you can collect very dime you deserve.
Have additional questions? You have the floor with the speaker during an interactive Q&A.
