Ensure your fully-deserved payments for urological services with this course.

If you do any coding for urology services, you know that modifiers are essential to your job. Every day, urology coding hits you with situations that require modifier expertise. If you’re not using modifiers, you could be losing 30 to 50 percent of the reimbursement you deserve.

To ensure you’re reporting every service and intervention accurately, join urology coding expert Michael A. Ferragamo, MD, FACS, for this 1-hour teleconference. He’ll give you the lowdown on the circumstances that require a modifier, from in-office procedures to surgical aftercare.
