Product Description

Master the Latest Basic and Advanced Procedure Codes with Specific Clinical Examples


Urologists and gynecologists are often involved in the performance of various uro-gynecological procedures, including many vaginal prolapse procedures and corrective urinary incontinence surgeries. Knowing how to accurately code and bill for these procedures is imperative to avoid denials and loss of payments—especially so because the CPT® codes are already in place with coding mechanisms for new clinical scenarios.

Learn the accurate steps to code for these procedures in this informative audio conference by urology coding expert Michael A. Ferragamo. Ferragamo will explain basic and advanced procedure coding using specific clinical examples—along with modifier use, and correct use of ICD-10-CM codes. He will also share coding tips for correct uro-gynecological procedures so that you can get it right the first time and avoid claim denials and revenue loss.

After attending this audio conference, you will learn the CPT® codes and coding mechanisms for coding new clinical scenarios. You will learn the precise coding and billing for the aforementioned uro-gynecological procedures, including several vaginal prolapse procedures and corrective urinary incontinence surgeries.
