Injection coding is notorious for its complexities, and the confusion surround the coding and reimbursement for injections is related to coding and payor rules, reporting of evaluation and management (E&M) services, and lack of proper documentation.
During this session, expert speaker Margie Scalley Vaught will discuss about the difference between trigger point injections vs. tendon origin/insertion and tendon sheath injections, to help you code them correctly. She will show you 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. Plus, Margie will also be providing supporting documentation from official sources, such as CMS, AMA/CPT, as well as payer/carrier option.
