Updates to the ICD-10-CM and CPT® codes have special implications for ob-gyn practices and coders in 2018. Reviewing the guidelines and coding principals that are directly related to obstetrics and gynecological services billed in your office can help to educate both physicians and staff regarding the correct documentation for clear, concise and correct coding and billing. This is timely and important information to put in place, especially when it comes to compliance and voiding misunderstanding on complex clinical issues that greatly affect not only the practice revenue, but how insurance can and will adjudicate your claims for reimbursement.
Join this session with expert speaker Lori-Lynne A. Webb, CPC, CCS-P, CCP, CHDA, CDIP, COBGC, AHIMA Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer, where she’ll review the current CPT® and ICD-10-CM codes and briefly cover the PCS changes that also impact the diagnosis and procedure guidelines with implications for ob-gyn. Lori-Lynne will provide in-depth strategies and the most up-to-date concepts for ultrasound services billed in the physician office. You'll learn the ins and outs for correct application of guidelines and procedure documentation criteria and standards direct from the experts at the AMA, CMS, and ACOG that oversee CPT®, HCPCS, ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS.
Lori-Lynne will assist you in making accurate code assignments and using electronic and web-based coding software. She’ll also discuss E/M and procedure documentation for coding and billing audits, including critical care and time-based coding. You’ll feel supremely competent in your ability to code and bill for the full scope for ob and gyn services in your physician’s office, and you’ll understand exactly how to correctly apply these guidelines and the documentation noted so you can receive the appropriate reimbursement for provided services. You’ll also get the added bonus of learning how to apply the ACOG, SMFM and AIUM guidelines accurately, to ensure smoother claims through all insurance carriers.
