Product Description

Learn to Accurately Code and Bill for Stone Disease of the Urinary Tract


The treatment of stone disease of the urinary tract is an everyday event for most urological practices. Recent changes in diagnoses with the new ICD-10 code sets, new treatment clinical scenarios, and changes in billing policies for both Medicare and commercial carriers make coding for these services confusing even to many new and experienced coders.

This session with expert urologist Dr. Michael A. Ferragamo will provide you with an understanding of the new rules to enable you to properly and accurately code and avoid mistakes that may lead to audits and subsequent loss of revenue. You will also receive tools and benefits after attending this session, such as coding tips and references to actual clinical cases and scenarios. This session will enhance your education and learning of the coding for these stone services so you can receive correct reimbursements and avoid denials.
