Product Description

Maximize Your Lab’s Claims with Expert Insights on the 2019 Updates

Achieving correct coding and billing accuracy for pathology services has never been so important. Coders, physicians, and other staff members are increasingly encountering problems on how to interpret and apply the coding guidelines and correct procedure codes for changing areas such as molecular pathology, cytogenetics, and molecular biology – to name a few. And even if you do not find too many changes in the anatomic pathology section of CPT®, just a small change in the description can muddy your claims.

Turbocharge your productivity with pathology coding expert Peggy Slagle. Learn how the code changes in anatomic pathology will impact your lab test reporting in 2019, including those to cytology and molecular pathology. Slagle will show you how to code appropriately for specimens listed in CPT®, as well as those not found on the list, and bring you up to speed with the different CPT® codes assigned to anatomic pathology specimens. You’ll learn how to document add on codes, along with examples of specific specimens. The session will also include time for a Q&A session to ensure that you fully understand the code changes.

After attending this instructive webinar, you’ll walk away with valuable information that you can use in your pathology and/or the private office setting right away. Plus, you’ll know how to document and support the new codes to ensure that you can file clean claims and earn what your lab truly deserves.
