Comprehend the Rationale behind Re-Bundling Of Neurosurgery Procedures

This teleconference by our expert speaker Gregory Przybylski, will help neurosurgical coders and practice managers understand the upcoming 2014 CPT changes pertinent to neurosurgery as well as recent trends to bundle  multiple procedures  ensuring complete and accurate identification of the appropriate procedure codes.  This course will summarize the CPT 2013 and 2014 coding changes.  Case scenarios will be used to highlight coding rules.

In addition to this, participants will also receive a summary of the new CPT codes for 2013 and 2014, a listing of recently bundled spinal procedures, as well as multiple scenarios that demonstrate appropriate coding of these procedures to help them battle the upcoming coding challenge with finesse.

Neurosurgery coding will undergo changes with the implementation of ICD-10-CM codes on October 1, 2014. In this scheduled transition, diagnoses that were earlier described and specified under only a fewer codes will now include dozens – if not hundreds – of variations.

Session Highlights:

  • Learn the new code changes in neurosurgery for 2014 and review recent changes from 2013
  • Learn the rationale behind re-bundling of neurosurgery procedures
  • Gain insight into anticipated changes in the future based on current bundling trends
  • Determine when multiple primary procedure codes can be billed
  • Understand how to apply modifiers to appropriately describe component coded procedures in neurosurgery.

Who should attend? Neurosurgery coders and practice managers will benefit from insight provided into understanding the nuances of coding for spinal surgery.
