Product Description

Answer your toughest spinal instrumentation coding questions.

New techniques and technologies for spinal instrumentation are moving faster than codes can keep up! Plus, procedures come in a variety of configurations -- which are often confusing, at that. In short, unique coding guidelines and billing requirements for spinal instrumentation test the knowledge of the most experienced neurosurgery coders!

Make sure you’re on your game the next time a spinal instrumentation procedure hits your desk. In this 1-hour audioconference with nationally-know neurosurgery coding expert Eric Sandhusen, MPH, CHC, CPC, you’ll learn everything you need to code the instrumentation portion of spinal surgeries accurately and efficiently. Plus, you’ll walk away with the knowledge to determine proper reimbursement and avoid any inappropriate payment denials.

Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • Spinal anatomy and definitions -- with diagrams to guide you!
  • Common types of posterior and anterior instrumentation ... and how they translate to codes.
  • Takeaway references: Real life examples of instrumentation coding.
  • Do you know the Primary (“predicate”) code requirements? Eric will get you up to speed.
  • The trickiest coding and reimbursement challenges solved: modifiers and bundling guidelines, new codes, and more.
  • New technologies and codes: What to do with things like X-stop and percutaneous instrumentation.
