A direct, time-saving pathway to the correct CPT codes

Nurses who provide infusion services work under tremendous pressure. Besides their clinical responsibilities, they are expected to identify or enter procedure codes for the billing of services. This is no easy task given the complex and often confusing official guidelines for code assignments and coding hierarchies. By customer request, MedLearn Publishing has created a quick-reference handbook tailored to the needs of nurses that addresses coding for outpatient infusion services in the hospital setting. Highlights:
  • Covers coding and documentation specific to outpatient hydration, drug therapy and chemotherapy services (infusions, injections and pushes) provided in the hospital setting
  • Presents CPT codes, along with definitions, in clear, concise language, organized for quick navigation
  • At-a-glance charts summarize codes and their descriptions, as well as listing the Medicare APC payment rate for each code
  • Explains coding hierarchies, as outlined by the AMA, for the primary service, secondary/sequential services and other services or additional hours of service
  • Documentation essentials to drive accurate charging and coding, while supporting medical necessity
  • New ICD-10-CM/PCS information, helping you prepare for the mandatory implementation on October 1, 2015
