Whether you are new to cytology coding or a veteran coder, this session will be helpful in identifying the appropriate codes for use with non GYN cytology — including any add-on codes and modifiers, and what type of information you should look for in the final report in order to appropriately submit a claim.
You may be just like expert presenter, Peggy Slagle – Where do you turn to get valuable information related to pathology coding? Slagle enjoys communicating with others about her involvement with the pathology experience. You’ll be able to walk away from this session with at least one valuable piece of information.
Although it seems that CPT codes for pathology don’t change over the years, many of the specifics in descriptions and correct coding can sometimes be difficult to maneuver. Slagle’s theory is that if you can walk away from a conference with one piece of valuable information, you’ve learned something new that you can apply to your daily tasks.
