Product Description

Get on Top of the ICD-10-CM Codes impacting Spine Surgery in just 60 minutes!

There are numerous changes for the musculoskeletal and injury sections of ICD-10-CM that will affect orthopedic and neurology practices. However, the subspecialty of spine surgery will have its own challenges with the new ICD-10-CM codes and the level of specificity necessary to choose the appropriate ICD-10-CM codes for the complex procedures performed. Knowing and preparing for these changes is imperative in order to avoid claim denials and slow or reduced reimbursement.

Spine conditions have their own diagnoses codes separate from other musculoskeletal and traumatic conditions. Because of this, it is not only important to look at this ICD-10-CM coding carefully due to the complexity of these cases, but also to not have a negative effect on the reimbursement. For most spinal procedures, there are many hours involved with a multitude of CPT® codes used. It is already difficult to receive the proper reimbursement, that is why it is critical that the ICD-10-CM coding is as specific as possible, and the ICD-10-CM and CPT® codes are complimentary, when applicable.

In this audio conference, Lynn Anderanin, CPC, CPC-I, COSC will review the ICD-10-CM codes most frequently used for spine surgery cases and their affect on the overall coding. Attendees will receive handouts to assist in assigning diagnoses codes by the correct level of the spine to match the CPT® codes when applicable.There will also be useful information on other common diagnoses codes related to spinal conditions and trauma.
