Coding and billing for the different types of injections and for injectable medication has its own challenges. Healthcare providers continue to lose money by not assigning the correct number of units for their injectable drugs. Documentation must clearly support how many ‘mgs’ were injected, and if you are using ‘ccs’, you may have the wrong number of units. Also, if you are not getting advance beneficiary notices (ABNs), or waivers for these injections, you risk receiving no payment for services rendered.
Join this session where expert speaker Margie S. Vaught, will discuss the correct way to document and bill for injectable medication. You will learn about the difference between trigger point injections vs. tendon origin/insertion and tendon sheath injections so that correct coding can take place. Margie will discuss the new changes regarding the use of imaging guidance and how that will affect your coding. You will also be provided with supporting documentation from official sources, such as CMS, AMA/CPT, as well as payer/carrier options.
