Product Description

Understand How to Use and Document for Modifiers to Ensure Coding & Billing Compliance

Modifiers are an integral part of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) coding. Oftentimes, without the use of modifiers, the description of the services provided would not be complete. Not only do modifiers affect payment and compensation, they are essential for ensuring the coding of services provided is compliant. Therefore, it is important for physicians, coders and billers to have a strong understanding of how to use and document for modifiers to ensure coding and billing compliance.

This webinar with expert speaker Barbara J. Cobuzzi will help you understand the difference between Evaluation and Management Coding (E&M) only, Global, and Bundling related modifiers and how they affect coding and payment.
