With CMS throwing a plethora of coding changes, 2019 is going to be no different. But without good instruction, you’ll be driving into 2019 without a reliable GPS. Gear up in advance for invaluable coding and billing guidance on how to maximize your orthopedic claims in 2019.
Catch up on all the coding changes that will impact orthopedics coding in this information-packed webinar. Let orthopedic coding guru Margie S. Vaught walk you through the 2019 changes relating to orthopedic coding and documentation for CPT® codes, CCI bundling issues, and CMS fee schedule. Find out how CMS wants to change documentation for E&M services, which new codes ICD-10 has added, and how the documentation guidelines to support ICD-10 diagnosis codes have been updated. But that’s not all: find out about the likely changes to NCCI guidelines, as well as to chapter four of the guidelines.
Vaught will bring you up to speed with some of the new CPT® issues for 2019, such as the new allograft codes, new biopsy coding, documentation requirements for ‘official interpretation’ of imaging, as well as imaging guidance documentation. She will discuss the new interprofessional consultation codes that have been added to CPT® (that your providers will definitely want to know about) and provide tips on how these codes can be used. She will also share CPT®’s insight into some coding changes that will take place in 2020, and show you how ICD-10 has further updated fracture coding to correct wording issues.
Note: You will receive links to the official ICD-10 2019 guidelines, CMS final physician fee schedule, and NCCI guideline updates. Having this information in your office is a great way to ensure that you and your staff remain current throughout the year.
After attending this instructive session, you will have the tools and the knowledge you need to confidently code orthopedic services in 2019. Be sure to attend, because every single coding revision will impact your orthopedic reimbursement in the coming year!
