The relative value file is a crucial tool for practices because it offers a wealth of information about how a procedure or service will be paid. But is your practice using the RVF – which is free – for all it’s worth? While Many practices use software or manuals to identify coding guidelines, the relative value file can help in coding for the listing of procedures by RVU.
Because the RVF defines reimbursement rules for processing claims with some of the most common modifiers in orthopedics and describes when those modifiers are applicable, as well as the effect modifiers can have on related procedures within a defined global period, it can help your practice make the best decisions about coding and reimbursement.
Join this session, by expert speaker Lynn M. Anderanin, CPC, CPMA, CPPM, CPC-I, COSC, to understand how to apply the relative value file in coding orthopedic procedures and services. You’ll also learn an easy way of customizing the file to be able to only see what is needed in your situation. Lynn will focus on how to use the RVF when coding orthopedic procedures and how to find the information available in the file to assist in assigning modifiers. The session will look at how easy it is to modify the RVF and customize it for your orthopedic practice.
