Product Description

Report Accurately with Code that Best Captures the Urology Procedure or Service

 

CPT® code additions, deletions, and revisions for 2020 will go into effect on January 1, 2020. Also 2020 ICD-10-CM diagnostic code changes with additions, deletions, and revisions are effective from October 1, 2019. Now is the time to familiarize yourself with these changes which may come into play for your practice. Fortunately, urology does not have as many updates as some other specialties, so you will not need to make many changes to your superbill or billing software. But changes will be necessary to receive correct reimbursements and avoid denials and loss of significant revenue!

Put yourself on the path to successful urology coding with industry veteran Michael Ferragamo, who will walk you through with clinical examples all the new CPT® and ICD-10-CM codes, and show you how to incorporate them into correct billing and coding.

After attending this webinar, you will be confident in your ability to submit correct claims, and know how to avoid payment denials, refunds, and revenue losses due to coding errors.
