2018 is here already and there’s little time to get ready for all the changes that are taking place in the 2018 CPT® manual. New appearances of physical therapy and grafting codes will affect coding in the orthopedic office and the reimbursement you will receive this year. Nerve repair codes are changing as well.
Join this session where orthopedic coding and compliance specialist Margie Scalley Vaught, will help the coders, billers, office and practice managers, and orthopedic surgeons take a deep dive into key CPT® code updates relating to orthopedics for 2018. Margie will cover the final Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) and will help you discover how CMS handled comments and responses related to overhauling and changing the E/M guidelines as well as imaging issues. You will also get links and page numbers from the MPFS!
The updated NCCI guidelines for 2018 from Chapters 1, 4 and 9 are also on the agenda of this session, which also includes a review of the existing bundling issues. Margie will further highlight subsection guidelines, along with all the comments that CPT® has regarding the appropriate way to use the new and revised codes. Get all the key people in your office up to date on everything from properly documenting imaging interpretation and order requirements to using the latest OIG Work Plan to ensure that your facility is in compliance.
