In-Depth and Up-to-Date Strategies for Gyn Surgical Coding & Billing


This webinar by expert speaker Lori-Lynne A. Webb, CPC, CCS-P, CCP, CHDA, CDIP, COBGC , will provide in-depth strategies and the most up to date surgical coding and billing guidance for GYN surgical physicians’ offices. Get current know-how, time-saving tips, documentation “macros” and proven strategies to help implement better documentation into the medical and patient care records.—since better documentation goes hand in hand with correct, clean claims. Look at the usage of "unlisted" codes for some of those difficult and "outside the box" surgical techniques that do not have a current CPT® code. Also, get tips on how to create clean claims as correctly submitted claims result in faster reimbursement.

The objective of this session is to help you educate your staff and physicians concerning the right documentation for clear and concise correct billing. Helping them navigate the tricky and complex gynecologic surgeries that have been revised with new surgical technologies and techniques. It is a valuable learning opportunity for both the beginner and the experienced coder.

New OB practice coders will get important information and guidance while experienced coders can learn some new ideas and information that have changed over time. Both clinical and office staff can listen, learn and implement the knowledge and best practices shared in this session to improve their practices’ bottom line. At the end of the session you will have all the information, tips and skills to create a better work flow and revenue stream within your OB-GYN practice. All the information can be utilized RIGHT NOW – no need to wait!
