Product Description

Breathe better during your bronchoscopy coding tasks.

Pulmonology coding is full of nuances and special coding circumstances, particularly in the field of bronchoscopies. For example, was the procedure diagnostic, therapeutic or surgical in nature? And how can you tell from the op note? You probably also run into questions regarding modifiers, bundling, and multiple procedures.

Wait no longer to clear these muddy waters and improve your pulmonology clinic’s reimbursement. Join expert speaker Becky Zellmer during this valuable 1-hour teleconference where you’ll get answers to all your pressing bronchoscopy coding questions. Becky will set the record straight with your coding AND give you a solid background on the lung anatomy and disease processes to help you better translate those op notes.

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

  • A must have for bronchoscopy coding: Anatomy basics and the diseases processes of the lungs.
  • Narrow down the best ICD-9 codes from the physician’s documentation. Here’s how.
  • All the CPT codes for bronchoscopies explained in bite-sized pieces of info.
  • Running into bundling obstacles? See what you can bill separately.
  • When you can code for multiple procedures … and when you cannot.
  • Think you’re finished? Here’s when you may need a modifier for correct reimbursement.
  • BONUS: Real-life operative notes to help you learn the ropes.
