Learn how to avoid real-world, high-risk practices

No radiology provider looks forward to hearing these words, "We've completed our audit and have identified several high-risk areas that could land you in trouble with government agencies and payers." Yet, this is often the outcome when we perform coding, billing and documentation audits of our clients.

The good news: We usually can recommend preventive steps to get them back on the right track. As an attendee of this MedLearn Publishing webcast series, you benefit, too. You learn what we've uncovered in our radiology audits over the past several months (of course, without divulging anyone's identity!), as well as what we've gleaned from numerous industry sources. Then our presenters, Jeff Majchrzak, BA, RCC, CIRCC, and Catherine Huyghe, CPC, draw from their vast subject matter knowledge to help you understand how you can reduce your risks in these areas.

Each year, the AMA adds, revises and deletes numerous radiology-specific CPT® codes. For 2016 a large number of these changes 10 new codes, to be exact apply to diagnostic radiology procedures of the hips, pelvis and spine. In this session, Jeff addresses the significant amount of confusion surrounding these codes by covering each one in detail, enabling you to achieve the correct, complete and fully compliant code assignments.

Presented by Catherine Huyghe, CPC

Financial pressures are pushing radiology practices and departments to uncover and seize new revenue opportunities. Why, then, are so many radiology providers working harder, but not reaping the financial rewards for their extra effort? In this session, Catherine examines medical necessity write-offs, physician ordering practices, documentation issues and other factors that prevent radiology providers from achieving their full revenue potential.

Presented by Catherine Huyghe, CPC

Inappropriate coding and missing documentation can seriously hamper the ability to support medical necessity for radiology services. Then there are those pesky modifiers, now particularly confusing due to stricter NCCI edits and the addition of MUEs and MAIs. Besides discussing these high-risk areas, Catherine will zero in on the documentation required for duplex Doppler studies and coding for fluoroscopy procedures, two perennial trouble spots.
