Product Description

Get an Understanding of Pain Management CPT® Coding Updates for 2017

 

2017 is witnessing multiple changes in Pain Management codes! In this session Amy Turner will discuss the ICD 10 changes, proposed CPT® codes for epidural injections, usage of JW modifier as well as proposed coding changes for urine drug screening this year. She will also review areas such as the new opioid use codes; drug induced constipation; 6th digit for cervical disc disorders; post procedural hemorrhage and hematoma codes; and addition of testicular and scrotal pain codes.

Additionally, Amy will cover the new codes for stimulator infection and inflammatory reactions, as well as the new proposed epidural codes that include differentiations based on the use of imaging guidance as well as epidural placement of indwelling catheters. Lastly, review of the use of JW modifier for discarded drugs and biologicals that is no longer optional in 2017 will be covered.
