It’s essential for the neurosurgical and orthopedic coders and practice managers to understand the critical elements of spinal surgery coding and recent trends to bundling of multiple procedures, to ensure complete and accurate identification of the appropriate procedure codes.
In this power packed 60 minute session, our neurosurgery coding expert Gregory J. Przybylski, MD will help you comprehend the CPT® 2012 and 2013 coding changes that resulted in bundling of component codes. He’ll discuss the coding rules via some case scenarios. Gregory will also provide the participants a summary of the predominant code sets to describe component coded and bundled spinal procedures, as well as multiple scenarios that demonstrate appropriate coding of these procedures.
Take a look at the topics covered:
For your information, presently 75% of the time the spine surgery procedures that are performed are considered for bundling, and this trend is moving towards 50% benchmark. Keep visiting AudioEducator.com for all your training needs on spinal surgery coding trends and issues.
