This audio-conference by Michael Ferragamo, Jr., MD, FACS, will provide the attendees with the coding knowledge and the new coding policies to accurately bill for these services and to avoid denials and loss of revenue that should be paid to your urologists. Coding for the various tumors of the genitourinary tract will be presented in a clear and concise manner. Coding various case scenarios dealing with the tumors of the urinary tract will be discussed for easy understanding of the rules of this type of coding.
