Understand the Rationale behind Re-Bundling Of Spinal Surgery Procedures

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:

  • Learn the rationale behind re-bundling of spinal surgery procedures
  • Determine which common procedures remain unbundled compared to those that have been bundled
  • Understand the four primary and multiple secondary components of spinal surgery
  • Determine when multiple primary procedure codes can be billed
  • Understand how to apply modifiers to appropriately describe component coded procedures in spinal surgery

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.

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