Learn Correct Coding For Different Bladder Lesions.

Urologists are treating different bladder lesions every day in both their offices and hospitals. These procedures constitute a large part of every day practice and a large source of income to urology in general. There are new and old procedures that are being performed by almost all urologists. In today's urology their correct coding and billing may account for large sums of revenue, and inaccurate coding will lead to loss of significant money rightfully owed to the physicians.

There are codes for new procedures as well as changes in old coding rules and policy that will be necessary for all personal involved to know now and to follow for proper and correct coding , billing, and collection of revenue. Join now for this jam packed session where you'll be provided with the needed coding skills, information, tips, and guidelines to properly code and submit clean claims every time for maximum reimbursements.

Here's a look at what all will be covered:

  • Review the global periods and proper diagnostic codes to describe bladder tumors as well as other bladder diseases.
  • How to bill for bladder biopsies and the fulguration of lesions? When does a biopsy become a treatment of bladder tumors.
