By breaking down the documentation and coding of complex IR procedures, these advanced level case-review-driven webcast sessions will address challenges that exist relative to coding and the ongoing changes. Bundled? Component coded? Hybrid-bundled? This series discusses all options and uses real-life case studies to demonstrate each of the possible choices as well as the similarities and the differences in each method, helping even the most seasoned staff take their knowledge to the next level.

Session 1: What's on The Agenda?

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

An advanced level, deep-dive into complex, and uncommon, case examples that reveal the nuances of coding diagnostic and therapeutic vascular interventions.

Walk through real-life cases illustrating the complexities of coding in an IR setting with topics and guidance to cut through the clutter and get to the appropriate code choices accurately and efficiently.

High-level discussion of vascular, diagnostic, and trans-catheter therapy services and procedures. Topics include:

  • Embolization
  • Angioplasty (PTA)
  • AV dialysis circuit
  • Thrombectomy
  • Infusion therapy (thrombolytic and non-thrombolytic)
  • Atherectomy
  • Intravascular stenting
  • Central venous access including guidance (US or fluoro)
  • Repositioning catheters
  • Aortic endograft repair (i.e., EVAR/TEVAR/FEVAR)
  • Y-90
  • Moderate sedation as well as IVUS when relevant
  • Q&A

Guidance based on Jeff’s expertise on the troublesome, newer “bundled/collapsed” codes.

Insight and expertise on common areas of confusion and noncompliance: bundled codes, what's included and separately reportable, the proper use of add-on codes for these procedures, and modifier assignment.

Session 2: What's on The Agenda?

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

An advanced level, deep-dive into complex, and some not-so-common, case examples demonstrates the nuances of coding non-vascular interventional procedures.

Walk through real-life cases that illustrate the complexities of coding in an IR setting. The topics and guidance provided will help you to cut through the clutter and get to the appropriate code choices accurately and efficiently.

High-level discussion of diagnostic and interventional non-vascular procedures. Topics Include:

  • Genitourinary and biliary procedures including, but not limited to:
    • Internal/external drainage
    • Device revisions and removals
    • Dilation
    • Biopsy
    • Embolization
  • Gastrointestinal tube procedures (i.e., placement, revision, exchange, etc.)
  • Biopsies, drainages, aspirations tube/drainage placement
  • Pain management
  • Discussion on moderate sedation when relevant
  • Q&A

Guidance based on Jeff's expertise on the troublesome, newer "bundled/collapsed" codes.

Insight and expertise on common areas of confusion and noncompliance: bundled codes, what's included and separately reportable, the proper use of add-on codes for these procedures, and modifier assignment.
