Coding for nerve blocks can be a challenge even for seasoned coders in your pain management practice. Understanding how to accurately report intercostal nerve block versus paravertebral (TAP) block can be complex, and even slight inaccuracies can muddy your case for medical necessity.
Navigate through your coding “nerve blocks” in this webinar with practical tips and guidance from expert coder Amy Turner. Learn when to use modifiers appropriately to ensure correct reimbursement on multi-level procedures versus bilateral procedures. Understand how to accurately report chemodenervation with toxins for headache and spasticity disorders, and how to correctly account for both the number of injections and the injection sites. Get totally clear about how to accurately report genicular nerve block and destruction, facet/MBB block and destruction (including correctly counting the levels), the use of ultrasound guidance on trigger point injections, and much more.
After attending this webinar, you’ll be confident in your ability to accurately report different types of nerve block conditions, and ensure maximum reimbursement for your practice.
