Product Description

Audit action plan for surgical path reports.

2007 was a huge year for CPT revisions for surgical pathology procedures, and word is that many practices are getting denials and missing reimbursement opportunities because the changes have been too big for coders and billers to digest. It's time to bone up on surgical path codes so your practice can audit for compliance blunders and missed opportunities. Plus, a watertight understanding of key surgical path codes and guidelines will steer you to a more profitable 2008.

Join expert speaker Peggy Slagle, CPC, for this 1-hour teleconference where she'll tell you all you need to know about surgical pathology coding and billing. She'll tell you where most providers are getting it wrong so that you can troubleshoot on your own.

Here's a sampling of what you'll learn:

  • Your step-by-step road map to the opportunities and pitfalls in cytopathology and surgical pathology coding.
  • What you should be looking for when billing for multiple procedure codes: The answer may surprise you.
