Product Description

Find out What CPT®/ICD 10 Changes Will Impact Your Pain Management Practice in 2019

Do you know where to find the updated codes in the CPT® and ICD 10 books? Every year around this time, we all wonder what’s changing. The good news is that you’ll have to tackle minimal ICD/ CPT® changes for 2019. But still it’s important for you to be aware of these changes so that you can increase your reimbursements in 2019.

In this session, coding expert Amy Turner will discuss proper coding for some of the less common, hard-to-code pain management procedures to make sure you are billing properly. Turner will bring you up to speed with the pertinent changes to ICD 10 and CPT® codes for 2019. You will know where exactly to find the new, deleted, and updated CPT® codes; discover what ICD 10 changes will impact pain management; and about the Medicare E&M changes. Turner will discuss the new fifth digit requirement for M79.1, as well as the requirements of the updated spinal cord stimulation programming codes. She will also show you how to code ganglion impar blocks, lateral femoral cutaneous nerve blocks, genicular nerve blocks, and genicular RF, and how to properly count facet levels.

After attending this session, you will be confident in your ability to code pain procedures to ensure full reimbursement for your services. Plus, you’ll know exactly where to find information in the CPT® book regarding code deletions, additions, and revisions.
