Knowing when you can and when you cannot separately bill for image guidance is imperative in 2015. There have been coding changes that have bundled image guidance into new CPT® codes and some payer coverage policy changes that are contradictory to CPT® section guidelines. It's tempting to take the easy road and assume that every guidance procedure that crosses your desk is bundled now, but that's only setting yourself up for lost reimbursements. Likewise, incorrect use of a modifier to bypass a NCCI bundling edit of image guidance can invite compliance trouble with a payer review.
Join expert speaker Marvel J. Hammer, RN, CPC, CCS-P, ACS-PM, CPCO in this 90-minute session to get expert tips on when to code guidance separately, how to choose the proper code and how to bring in the most reimbursement you ethically can.
