Do you know what the current guidelines are for arthroscopic procedures in the shoulder, wrist, hip, or ankles? Because these are common procedures performed by orthopedic surgeons that cost the insurance companies a lot of money, they are under constant scrutiny and the policies are changing frequently. Having an understanding of the current rules will reduce denials and help with denials you may already have.
There have not been a lot of arthroscopic CPT® code changes in the last few years, however, there are new policies and rules related to coding arthroscopic procedures happening frequently, and if you are not on top of them you could be costing your physicians valuable reimbursement.
Join this conference by expert speaker Lynn Anderanin, CPC, CPPM, CPC-I, COSC, to get an understanding of several commercial carrier and Medicare policies that affect arthroscopies—helping you in the right direction for clean claims. Also, get references to updated policies for coders, which they can share with their physicians so that everyone in the office have a clear understanding of what can and cannot be reported.
Additionally, get the latest information on some important code changes in order to code for these services while meeting the policies and rules, create clean claims and avoid reimbursement delays.
