Product Description

What's New In Pathology Coding For 2013? Get Up To Date Before You Submit Any Claim In The New Year.

Join this power packed event presented by expert speaker Ellen Garver, BS, BA, CPC who’ll provide you insights on how to correctly use new and revised CPT® 2013 codes to earn the pay you deserve. You’ll be able to maneuver the molecular pathology payment maze, and learn to comply with CMS regulatory guidance — outlined in Clinical Laboratory and Physician Fee schedule updates, as well as Correct Coding Initiative policy — to ensure clean claims.

Plus, you’ll get expert guidance gleaned from insider interviews, "How-to" tips for implementing new codes, and analysis of fee schedule and policy updates from CMS. Ellen will provide links to official guidance documents for authoritative resources.

Here's what you'll learn:

  • Prepare for CPT® 2013 molecular pathology additions and deletions that will radically alter reporting from “stacking codes” to “Tier 1/Tier 2 codes” — and find out how Medicare will manage payment.
  • Get to know new clinical lab codes — Galectin-3, circulating tumor cells, infectious agent codes, and more — along with CMS payment recommendations.
