Product Description

Get Your Reimbursement Flowing With Correct Coding For Ancillary Urology Procedures

Many urological practices are adversely feeling the constraints on reimbursements imposed by the Government and other private carriers for routine urological services. To maintain practice viability and sufficient reimbursements, offices have sought ancillary procedures and their payments to maintain standard urological revenues while continuing to be compliant and provide up to date urological services that may not have been available in the past from urological offices.
 
In this 60 minutes audio conference, our expert Michael A. Ferragamo, Jr., MD, FACS will provide a list of these services which urologists may wish to provide and their proper coding and billing to insure entitled payments. Examples and tips on billing will be provided for many of the most common urological ancillary services. Plus, he will also show some charts, actual insurance and billing forms to distinctly clarify the coding of these services.
 
Key talking points will include the correct coding and billing of the following topics:

  • Shifting procedures from hospital to office procedures
  • Use of Botox treatment and PTNS procedures in the office
  • Ancillary radiological services used most frequently in the office setting
  • Special cystoscopic procedures
  • Biofeedback and pelvic floor muscle training
  • Surgical procedures performed in the office or clinic
  • Coding for special Cystoscopic procedures
  • Botox coding for Urology
  • Urological coding errors
  • Uroplasty PTNS 2012 update
  • Reimbursable ICD 9 diagnosis codes for PTNS
  • Most frequent 50 urological services and procedures
  • Radiology update 2013
  • 2013 Documentation Criteria for 51798

Who should attend? Billers, coders, urologists, front office staff, and anyone interested in what other practices are doing to maintain practice viability and revenue in these difficult times.
