Product Description

Correctly Code and Bill for Fractures to Improve the Reimbursements for your Orthopedic Practice

Fracture care is a big part of orthopedic clinics, primary care and family practice clinics along with Emergency rooms, but it’s also the place where you are losing the most money because of incorrect coding, and not reading and appealing the denials on the Explanation of Benefits (EOBs).

This session with expert speaker Margie Vaught, CPC, CPC-H, CPC-I, CCS-P, PCE, MCS-P, ACS-EM, ACS-OR, will give you the supporting information from official sources (CMS/AAOS/ CPT®) to get those claims paid and paid appropriately. You will also go over the new CCI guidelines related to closed treatment without manipulation fractures.

Session Highlights:

  • Learn to avoid coding errors by correctly selecting CPT® and ICD-10 codes based on the anatomic location of the fracture.
