Product Description

Get Expert Insights on 2019 Podiatry Coding Updates Before They Trigger a Denial


The changes to Medicare policies in your area can affect how you report debridement of ulcers, and other foot care treatments. Here’s an opportunity to beat denials with invaluable coding and billing guidance to maximize your claims in 2019. Make certain all your claims are paid in the New Year by ensuring you are ready for the CPT® 2019 and ICD 10 coding changes for podiatry.

Learn from industry veteran Lynn Anderanin the current ICD-10 status and the CPT® 2019 changes that will affect the services that podiatrists and other foot care specialists perform. Anderanin will walk you through the fundamentals of podiatry coding and billing, and review any changes for 2019 that may affect the reporting of these services. She will bring you up to speed with the current coding guidelines and policies for podiatry, teach you how to code correctly for services and supplies related to orthotics – including the recently added new codes for orthotics – and provide useful documentation suggestions for podiatric procedures. You will understand the latest coding guidelines for Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) and National Coverage Determinations (NCDs), how to utilize the Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) appropriately when a patient is responsible for payment, and the latest guidelines for dispensing diabetic shoes. You will also learn what codes should be reported when, what insurance carriers will not cover, and when it is appropriate not to bill the patient.
