Take The Guesswork Out Of Gyn Oncology Coding.

Coding for gynecological oncology cases can be a nightmare, given the seemingly endless number of procedures – and combinations of procedure – that treats different types of cancer. You not only have to know what was done by the surgeon, but then you must be able to pick out codeable diagnoses in support of what was done.

Register now with this enlightening session where our expert speaker Melanie Witt, RN, CPC, COBGC, MA, will take you through the essentials of Ob-gyn oncology coding. Know the diagnostic and procedural combinations to rightly claim it at the first time.

As a value addition, you will also get Ob-gyn cancer coding table that highlights the elements of each surgery by CPT code, along with RVUs for each procedure to find the right code fast.
