Product Description

Are You Coding Urodynamics Correctly?


Many urology and urogynecology offices are frequently performing urodynamic services as ancillary procedures. But if you’re not keeping up on recent coding changes for these services, you could face claim denials and under-payments. To get the full reimbursement that your office deserves, you must understand both basic and complicated urodynamic coding, as well as proper use of modifiers and add-on codes.

Join expert speaker Michael Ferragamo, Jr., MD, FACS as he walks you through the nuts-and-bolts of coding urodynamic services and the recent changes that you must master to capture all deserved reimbursement. Get clinical examples and urodynamic coding scenarios to learn the most up-to-date and correct coding.

After attending this audio event, you will be able to correctly code urodynamics pursuant to the latest rules for 2018. You will understand how to bill for urodynamics in a variety of settings and how to avoid claims denials for these services.
