Product Description

Avoiding Incorrect Coding and Appealing for EOB Denials in Fracture Care


Fracture care is a big part of orthopedic, PCP and family practice clinics along with emergency rooms. It is also the place where you are losing the most money because of incorrect coding and not reading and appealing the denials on the EOBs.

This audio session by expert speaker Margie Scalley Vaught will give you the supporting information from official sources (CMS/AAOS/CPT) to get those claims paid and paid appropriately. Margie will also help you go over the new CCI guidelines related to closed treatment without manipulation fractures.

Session Highlights

  • How correct location of the fracture based on anatomic location is going to be key in the correct selection of the CPT® and ICD-10 codes
  • 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 and what is considered open treatment of a fracture
  • NCCI bundling issues regarding closed treatment without manipulation by itself and when reporting with other fracture treatment, and the adding of dislocations to this policy
