Coding and billing for spinal procedures just got more complicated in 2020. With new techniques, guidelines, and procedures, payers and regulators are scrutinizing spinal procedures more closely than ever before. It is crucial for you to handle your spinal surgical procedures coding and billing accurately—and more carefully. This will not only help prevent denials and audits, but also keep your practice more healthy financially.
Join this session, where expert speaker Lynn Anderanin, will discuss the changes that will impact your reimbursements for spinal surgical procedures in 2020. Speaker will cover the new and revised CPT® codes for spinal procedure, as well as how to apply 20000 and 60000 CPT® codes to procedures performed. Understand the use of the NCCI Policy Manual to confirm correct coding for instrumentation. Choose the coding for spine procedures by using diagnoses and write appeals that will reverse denials that are inappropriate.
You will also get the tips and strategies to avoid denials and get maximum reimbursements from Medicare as well as private insurance companies.
After attending this session, you will be confident in your ability to code and document the new and revised spinal surgical procedures. Plus, you will understand the guidelines and intent of the CPT® codes, and know how to correctly report the full range of CPT® codes in 2020.
