Product Description

Choose Accurate Codes for Multiple Urological Procedures to Ensure Correct Payments

Proper coding for multiple urological procedures performed at the same encounter can be confusing to coders and billers. Needless to say, the confusion can lead to reduced payments and claim denials.

Remember that while billing for multiple procedures, urologists are often required to select between codes that may consist of more, or less, than the service carried out. Several CPT codes include various different procedures, although not the precise combination performed during a specific surgery.

Let our expert Michael A. Ferragamo, MD, FACS instil the requisite knowledge to accurately bill for these services. Get expert guidance on various coding techniques and modifier use to ensure payment for multiple services. You will be presented with algorithms during the session to help understand the coding for clinical scenarios when one or two urologists perform multiple urological procedures at the same encounter.

Here’s What You’ll Learn:

  • Know how a physician may act as a surgeon, assistant surgeon, and a co-surgeon?
  • Learn what documentation is needed for an assistant surgeon or a co-surgeon to ensure reimbursement?
  • Get tips on coding for a consultation and surgery when called to OR to assist a primary surgeon
  • Learn how to code for multiple surgeries at the same time performed by one or two urologists?
  • Get examples of single surgical CPT codes encompassing multiple surgical procedures
  • Learn ho the associates may code using different procedures and CPT codes for the performance of one surgical indication, and a whole lot of coding information.
