Product Description

You may have a boatload of codes to choose from -- but it's easier than it seems.

Coding for gynecological oncology cases can be a nightmare, given the seemingly endless procedures --and combinations of procedures -- that treat different types of cancer. Not to mention the many ICD-9 codes to keep track of. But it doesn't have to be.

Join expert speaker Melanie Witt, RN, CPC-OGS, MA, for this 1-hour audioconference that'll turn a coding nightmare into a solid understanding -- that pays off on your claims. She'll walk you through the essentials of gynecological oncology coding from diagnosis to procedure combinations so that you can get each claim right the first time.

Here’s a sampling of the details you’ll learn:

  • Get familiar with the different gynecologic cancer types and their treatments.
  • How to choose the diagnosis code that best supports the surgery performed.
  • Faced with a combination surgery that has no exact CPT code? Here's what to do.
  • The different levels of hysterectomy -- and an easy way to tell them apart.
  • A easier way to tackle brachytherapy and special chemotherapy procedures.
  • Take-home coding table: See the elements of each surgery by CPT code along with RVUs for each procedure.

Have additional questions? You have the floor with the speaker during an interactive Q&A!

Who should attend? Coders, billers and practice managers in ob-gyn and oncology settings.
