Product Description

Put An End To Incorrect Billing By Appealing The Denials On The EOBs

Fracture care is infamous for being one of the most poorly reimbursed specialties. It’s a big part of orthopedic clinics, PCP, family practice clinics and the Emergency rooms—and it’s where you are losing your money because of incorrect coding, and not reading and appealing denials on the EOBs.

Join our expert Margie Scalley Vaught in this hour long power-packed session to find the supporting information from official sources (CMS/AAOS/CPT) and get those claims paid and paid appropriately.

This one-of-a-kind session will cover:

  • The correct location of the fracture based on anatomic location is going to be key in the correct selection of the CPT code, as well as the ICD-9 code. If the exact location is not supplied, errors will occur in correct coding
  • Itemized vs. Global Fracture Care reporting – Are there times when you would report similar to a sprain/strain, or are they always reported using a major fracture care CPT code which has a 90 day global?
  • What is percutaneous fixation and what should the documentation say?
  • What is considered open treatment of a fracture?  
  • Which set of debridement codes should be used for open fractures vs. open wounds not resulting in open fractures? What should the documentation look like?

Who should attend? Coders, Billers, Office Managers, Practice Manager, Therapist
