Product Description

You don't have to start from scratch to learn new shoulder codes. Get in on the secret.

Shoulder surgeries have multiplied over the years, with new technology and services -- but has your coding know-how kept up? Memorizing lots of new procedures and technology can sound daunting, but it's a whole lot easier if you have a solid understanding of the shoulder anatomy.

Join expert speaker Annette Grady, CPC, CPC-H, CPC-I, CPC-P, CCS-P, CPC-Ortho, CPC-FP, for this 1-hour session designed to help both the beginner coder and seasoned coder improve their shoulder procedure coding. She'll focus on shoulder anatomy, documentation musts, AAOS recommendations and more to push you to the next level.

Here’s a sampling of the details you’ll learn:

  • The ticket to understanding your surgical code choices: an in-depth anatomy of the shoulder.
  • Nail your modifier application to a tee. These tips remove the guesswork -- and keep you in CCI compliance.
  • Diagnosis sequencing: You need this down-pat to support your code choices.
  • Important documentation requirements for various shoulder procedures. If you don't have these, you can wave your reimbursement good-bye.
  • Afraid to report unlisted procedures? Banish your fears with Annette's template.
  • Tools and tips that'll help you communicate with your surgeon -- proven tactics.
  • Key disease process that identify with certain specific CPT codes. This information will give your coding a stronger backbone.
