Product Description

Turbocharge Your Otolaryngology Coding Productivity with Expert Insights

 

Staying on top of the new otolaryngology codes and understanding how they will impact your practice are the keys to your success this year. But with the continually evolving CMS updates, you're about to encounter a number of new, deleted, and revised CPT® and ICD-10 codes to report otolaryngology-related procedures and services in 2019. The new codes added to Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) codes will require you to modify your approach to coding for FESS, especially when you operate on three or four sinuses, as will the other changes. Are you ready?

Sharpen your coding accuracy and turbocharge your productivity in this information-packed webinar designed to make sure you get paid for all your services and do not receive payment denials. Join otolaryngology coding expert Barbara J. Cobuzzi, who will walk you through the new codes, and explain how they will impact coding for the otolaryngology practice. She will discuss how the global day changes for Submucosal Resection of Turbinates changed coding and billing for the practice, and, of course, the ICD-10 changes that impact otolaryngology.

After attending this webinar, you will be confident in your ability to successfully integrate the new CPT® codes and the changed ICD-10 codes with the existing ones. You will know the new CPT® codes for FESS; modified wording for existing CPT® codes in 2018 and 2019, and also the revised wording CPT® codes for Bronchoscopy.
