Urological coding has become more complicated and itâs often difficult to choose the correct CPTÂ® codes because of the CPTÂ® coding manual changes every year. In addition, the changes in the diagnostic coding using new ICD-10 codes also complicate the process. These coding changes have resulted in several new, revised and deleted ICD-10 and CPTÂ® codes for this year, and more changes to come next year.
Join expert speaker Michael A. Ferragamo, Jr., MD, FACS, in this session to review the most important coding changes ("Pearls") and the common errors ("Pitfalls") found in urological coding that often lead to claim denials and loss of significant revenue. Didactic explanations and teaching as well as specific clinical scenarios will be presented throughout the conference to bring to light these urological Pearls and Pitfalls and allow coders to recognize the correct coding for the numerous clinical situations that might arise for coding.
Who should attend?
Urologists, Non physician providers, coders, billers and all office staff involved in choice of ICD-10 and CPT codes, authorization of services and procedures, precertification, and postings may wish to attend and increase their coding knowledge. The format of Pearls and Pitfalls will be of interest to all.
