Product Description

Demystify the Issues Related To Right Codes for Injection and Correct HCPCS Code for Injectable Medication

Are you aware of the difference between trigger point injections vs. tendon origin/insertion and tendon sheath injections so that correct coding can take place?

Join expert speaker Margie Scalley Vaught in this informative session to discuss the correct way to document and bill for injectable medication. Offices continue to lose money by not assigning the correct number of units for their injectable drugs.

Documentation must clearly support how many ‘mgs’ was injected, if they are doing ‘ccs’ you may have the wrong number of units. Also, are you getting ABNs, or waivers for these injections? If not, you could risk receiving NO payment for services rendered. Margie will also cover the new changes regarding using imaging guidance and how that will affect your coding.

Additionally, she will also provide supporting documentation from official sources, such as CMS, AMA/CPT, as well as payer/carrier options.

Session Highlights:

  • Recognize the differences between the injection codes that are most commonly used;
  • Develop documentation guides for specific payers regarding ICD-9 and CPT® linkage issues;
  • Understand correct documentation as it relates to performing injections under imaging; guidance;
  • Getting your providers to correctly document the actual injection and medication being injected correctly;
