Product Description

Catch Up on the 2018-19 Ob-Gyn Coding Updates So You Don’t Trip Over Denials


Are you still stressing over the latest Ob-Gyn changes and coding challenges? Here’s an opportunity to beat denials with invaluable coding and billing guidance to maximize your claims in 2019!

Join expert Ob-Gyn coding consultant Lori-Lynne Webb for practical, in-depth strategies on how to use ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS, CPT® and HCPCS codes specific to Ob-Gyn services. Webb will walk you through the new codes put forth by AMA and WHO that will impact both office and surgical coding in obstetrics and gynecology clinical practice. She will teach you the correct code choices – including verbiage and coding guidelines – and show you how to clearly, correctly and concisely document CPT® procedures and ICD-10 diagnoses. 

Did you know that insurance carriers have changed their "scope" of coding and clinical documentation for “medical necessity” and “pre-authorization” over the years – and they may or may not follow ICD-10-CM, CPT®, or even the correct coding guidelines put forth by CMS? Don’t worry, Webb will teach you the best practices to address such issues, and also provide practical answers and solutions to common coding questions critical to your Ob-Gyn bottom line.

Webb will teach you how to coordinate the clinical documentation that physicians, clinical staff, coders, and billers often find so confusing. You will understand the relationship among ICD-10-CM/PCS, CPT® and HCPCS within the gynecologic practice of an Ob-Gyn office, and learn how the new codes for 2018-19 will impact not only your practice, but also third party payers, and reimbursement and denial processes. Webb will also reveal the key strategies and coding concepts necessary for correct billing.

After attending this webinar, you will be confident in your ability to select the proper codes, ensure quick adjudication of claims for your Ob-Gyn practice, and keep your revenue stream flowing.
