Product Description

Spruce Up Your Basic Ortho Coding Know-How for Cleaner Claims and Increased Reimbursement

If the musculoskeletal basics and ortho coding rules still puzzle you, you could be costing your practice a lot of money in deserved reimbursement.

Orthopedic coding is no walk in the park but if you know your basics, it could be simpler. The more you know about the accurate codes, modifiers and rules, the better your results when you submit claims.

This expert orthopedic coding conference will go through the basics of orthopedic coding to include orthopedic anatomy, fracture care coding for the most common procedures performed in this specialty, and will guide you on how to maximize reimbursement with the use of modifiers and coding rules.

There will be charts provided for anatomy and coding specific procedures.  We will also review CCI edits as well as the American Academy of orthopedic Surgeons coding reference material.

Here are a few highlights of the session:

  • Anatomy of the musculoskeletal system as it relates to orthopedic coding
  • Utilizing the  cardiovascular, nervous, and integumentary sections of CPT in orthopedics
  • Tips on the use of modifiers to ensure that all procedures performed are reimbursed
