Femoraocetabular impingement (FAI) and knee arthroscopy procedures are becoming more and more common – but so are claims denials for these procedures. Why? There are many factors to blame, including murky private payer policies and ICD-10 coding mistakes. Also, CCI and CPT agree on some bundling issues related to knee procedures, but not all, and you need to know what your payers say so you won’t face a mountain of rejected claims.
Learn how in this information-packed audio presentation by orthopedic coding expert Margie Scalley Vaught, CPC, CPC-H, CPC-I, CCS-P. Learn the ins and outs of hip and knee coding, with the latest information from official sources and instructions on what to look for in an operative note to support the appropriate CPT and ICD-10 coding, as well as modifiers.
After attending this audio event, you will know how to correctly code hip and knee procedures, so you can prevent claims denials from all your payers. You’ll be able to perfect your claims to private payers with proper ICD-10 coding and knowledge of exactly what they cover. Dig deep into tricky total joint arthroplasties and hip imaging documentation problems. Also, find out the right (and wrong) ways to address bundling for hip and knee procedures.
