Product Description

Are You Coding Wellness Services Correctly?


Coding and clinical documentation for women’s wellness GYN services is often confusing for coders, billers, and even clinical staff. How do you know that you’re getting paid for the services you’ve provided? In a GYN clinical or surgical gynecologic practice, that question isn’t so easy to answer.

Learn how to get the reimbursement you deserve for wellness services in this information-packed audio presentation by expert speaker Lori-Lynne A. Webb. Take a deep-dive into correct office coding within the GYN clinical practice, and educate your physicians and staff on the correct documentation for clear and concise accurate usage of the CPT wellness codes and Medicare/Medicaid codes for wellness services. Improve your practice’s bottom line with key strategies and coding concepts necessary for correct billing.

After attending this audio event, you will be able to ensure that your clinical documentation is aligned with what your coders are coding and billers are billing. You will understand the importance of using ICD-10-CM for correctly appending diagnoses for pre-authorizations. Most of all, you’ll walk away with in-depth strategies and the most up-to-date concepts and information on using ICD-10-CM, CPT, and HCPCS codes and clinical documentation targeted specifically for Women’s Wellness GYN services.
