Diagnostic breast procedure coding and billing continues to be a source of confusion and errors in 2017, causing some to describe it in three words: It's a mess.
Join Donna Richmond as she addresses questions such as when post procedural mammography can be separately charged, what must be documented for certain codes, the choices between diagnostic and screening, reporting CPT or G-codes, what private payers are going to accept, as well as how to bill CAD and digital breast tomosynthesis performed with mammography procedures.
Read on for a preview of some of the questions our expert presenter will address. Don't miss out on this opportunity to finally clear up the confusion, and take advantage of a rare Q&A opportunity at the end of the webcast, as time permits:
- Should you report the CPT or G-code to Medicare and other payers for breast imaging?
- Digital Breast Tomosynthesis — don't forget that unlike CAD, DBT is an add-on code, charged separately
- Do you know the difference between when to bill c-codes vs. CPT codes for Magnetic Resonance Breast Scan (MRBS)?
- Are you aware of the differences of Aspirational vs. Core Biopsy Procedures — can you bill them together?
- Breast Ultrasound — complete vs. limited codes — do you know what documentation you need to support the complete code?
- Are you performing Positron Emission Mammography (PEM)? Do you know when to code a unilateral vs. bilateral?
- Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI) — are you coding limited vs. multiple correctly?
- Do you know when Post Procedural Mammography can be separately charged?
