In everyday urological practice, many urologists perform more complicated operations, which often include different surgical procedures with different CPT® codes. The health and success of your medical practice is based upon your ability to submit claims in a timely manner that are reimbursed appropriately. Denied claims may be a fact of life, but there’s a lot you can do to fight back: by learning the changes to CPT® and ICD-10 coding affecting 2018 reimbursements.
Join this session, where urology specialist Dr. Jonathan Rubenstein, MD, FACS, will discuss the CPT® coding changes taking place in 2018, as well as provide a detailed understanding of ICD-10, the 2018 updates, and the rules surrounding them that apply to urology. Jonathan will discuss the 12 CPT® code changes (5 additions, 4 revisions, 3 deletions) in urology for 2018. He will also discuss the code changes that took place in ICD-10 on October 1, 2017 along with the ideas for future code changes. Join Jonathan and learn how to maximize documentation to minimize denials based upon ICD-10 code choice. Jonathan will provide a solid understanding of the ICD-10 code set structure and of the “clinical modification” of ICD-10, and urologists, practice managers, billing staff and prior authorization specialists will be able to better understand the documentation needed to choose the most specific ICD-10 codes, and how the code choice will affect payment of claim submissions in a timely manner to reduce the risk of denials.
