Get Familiar with the Latest Neurosurgery CPT® Coding Updates for 2017

On January, 1, 2017, a number of coding changes and guidelines came into effect, including those codes which were not listed within the current CPT® code set. In order to improve clinical documentation and maximize reimbursements for your practice, it is essential that you know the latest revisions and changes to CPT® codes in 2017.

In this session, expert speaker Greg Przybylski will cover the new 2017 CPT® codes for neurosurgery procedures and will reveal trends to expect in 2018. These challenges include incorporating the new neurosurgical CPT® codes into the practice, as well as understanding their appropriate use and knowing which services are considered bundled with them. After reviewing the coding rules, case scenarios will be also used to highlight the appropriate coding for these procedures, so that you can prepare yourself and imbibe these changes in your practice.
