Ensure appropriate, compliant coding and avoid missed revenue

Are you capturing all legitimate charges for cardiac cath and peripheral services? Are you confident with coding for peripheral angiography and interventions? Centered around common coding errors, this session brings procedures to life to ensure you walk away with not only an understanding of the codes as they relate to specific procedures, but also how to apply them based on the documentation.

Based on common questions, and common mistakes, join Cathy Huyghe as she walks through real-life case examples hand-picked to address the top problem areas she sees in cath labs across the country. You'll learn the dos and don'ts of coding and billing for selected cardiac cath and peripheral procedures while walking away with a deeper understanding of the procedures themselves, what can and cannot be charged, documentation requirements and best practices to share. With this knowledge, you will be confident that you're consistently capturing all legitimate charges.
