On October 1st, there will be major changes in coding that we have not seen in almost 40 years, but while when everyone is prepared for these changes – there are changes happening in the guidelines related to CPT® coding and new techniques are also being performed at the same time. This audio conference will highlight some coding changes for both CPT® and ICD-10 to help reduce denials that might occur due to these changes
If you take current coding trends and guidelines and combine them with the implementation of ICD-10, you come up with a lot of changes to coding that will cause us to do our coding differently than before. This conference by expert speaker Lynn Anderanin CPC, CPC-I, COSC, will take a good look at several coding changes that have occurred in the last year as well as some possible coding issues that may occur as a result of ICD-10.
Lynn will review some new procedures currently being performed and share coding tips for these procedures. You will get several tables created by Lynn to help you with the coding of ICD-10 for common orthopedic conditions.
Most people are familiar with the CCI edits, but many are still unaware of the existence of a Policy Manual. In this session, you will learn about the CMS NCCI Policy Manual that became effective on January 1st.
