Product Description

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


The healthcare industry is constantly changing, and podiatry is no exception. There have been more changes in all areas of coding for podiatry this year than most other years, and your reimbursement can be in serious jeopardy if you’re not sure how to properly apply the changes. 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.

Get the latest podiatry updates for CPT®, ICD-10-CM, Medicare and more from industry veteran Lynn Anderanin. Anderanin will walk you through the new diagnoses codes for myalgia, Medicare’s final rule for E&M services with a possible major change for podiatrists, and new biopsy and allograft codes for 2019. She will explain the revised documentation guidelines for DME that make it a little easier to document for diabetic shoes, inserts, and braces. You will also learn about the latest updates and changes for podiatry that are already in effect or will come into effect from January 1, 2019.

After attending this information-packed session, you will be confident in your ability to apply the coding changes to your podiatry practice and collect all your reimbursements—without leaving money on the table.
