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