Product Description

Avoid Claim Denials and Loss of Significant Revenue by Avoiding Common Urology Coding Pitfalls

As the coding process has increased in intensity and become more confusing, physicians and coders now have more responsibility to provide correct and accurate coding for both CPT® procedural codes and the new ICD-10 diagnostic codes.

In this session, expert speaker Michael A. Ferragamo MD, FACS, will provide coding advice to help urologists and coders to bill correctly and increase entitled payments for their services. Also, coding pitfalls will be shown and explained to help coders and physicians avoid claim denials and loss of significant revenue by inaccurate billing and coding.

Dr. Ferragamo will present clinical scenarios and examples corresponding to correct CPT® codes, modifiers, and the new ICD-10 diagnostic codes. Attending this audio conference will enable you to avoid common coding errors and to submit clean and correctly coded claims at the first attempt. Even for many special clinical urological scenarios that have a past history of improper coding and consequently denial of payments. If you have an interest in coding of scenarios in urology, this is a must-attend event for you.
