When it comes to coding foot and ankle-related services performed by a podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon, the term “complex” may seem like an understatement. You are dealing with intricate and often confusing CPT coding and Medicare guidelines, not to mention interpreting what other insurance carriers consider medically necessary versus experimental or investigational.
Join coding expert Lynn M. Anderanin, CPC, CPMA, CPC-I, CPPM, COSC as she walks you through podiatry coding, including CPT and ICD-10 coding as well as the correct use of modifiers. Learn how to create clean claims, so you can reduce denials that you have to adjudicate later on. When claims are correct the first time, you won’t face payment denials and you’ll save additional time that you would otherwise have to spend to obtain reimbursement.
After attending this audio event, you will be able to help your providers understand how it’s important to code podiatry and foot/ankle procedures with the correct modifiers, such as the Q modifiers.

You’ll also learn when the patient is responsible for payment and the insurance requirements involved.
