Product Description

Don’t miss these vital documentation details for wound care and debridement claims.

You may know that physicians perform active wound care procedures to remove devitalized and/or necrotic tissue and promote healing, but did you know that to report these services, the physician must have direct (one-on-one) contact with the patient?

You have endured some major changes over the last several years in wound care guidelines, which include the addition of even the CPT® codes pertaining to wound debridement and active wound care codes that require MORE documentation than ever before.

To make certain your wound care claims are error-free, you should attend this vital conference, provided by expert presenter, Margie S Vaught. Register now!

This session will help you:

  • Define wound debridement, open fracture debridement and active wound care procedures.
  • Describe what surgical debridement documentation you now need for all three different debridement CPT® code ranges.
  • Distinguish the difference between non-selective wound care codes, selective wound care codes, and application of wound vacs
  • Identify the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) and CPT® bundling rules as well as payer/carrier policies and interpretation issues.
  • Try your hand at examples/scenarios what will show you how the coding should look.
  • Understand what to do when skin grafting/replacement is involved.

Who should attend? Coders, Billers, Office Managers, Practice Manager, Orthopedic Surgeons
