Product Description

Insurance carriers are scrutinizing arthroscopic cases more closely and requiring additional information.

You need to make sure that your knee coding is what it should be if you want to collect appropriate reimbursement.

CPT states that procedures performed in different compartments of the knee can be reported separately. Make sure you can identify the compartments of the knee and the proper coding using procedure codes and modifiers.

Join expert orthopedic coder, Lynn Anderanin for this 60-minute seminar where she will look at arthroscopic, as well as other knee procedures that some insurance carriers consider experimental or investigational.

Here's a look at what Lynn will cover:

  • Knee anatomy and proper CPT coding
  • Coding knee arthroscopy by compartments
  • Sample appeals letters for inappropriately denied knee procedures
  • The OATS procedure and its complications in coding
  • HCPCS codes related to arthroscopic knee procedures
  • Proper use of modifiers to designate separate procedures performed in the knee
  • Intra-operative platelet rich plasma injections to promote healing
  • Different procedures related to arthroplasty or reconstruction of the knee
  • ICD-9 and CPT coding of ACL repairs

Who should attend? Physicians and other non physician providers involved in performing and coding knee procedures, coders, and administrators.
