Protect your CRM revenue stream and keep the auditors at bay

Your facility depends on the high reimbursements from cardiac rhythm management (CRM) and electrophysiology (EP) procedures. However, low coding accuracy rates, exacerbated by complex and/or inadequate physician documentation, may be opening the door to auditors eager to find mistakes and take back some of that revenue — exactly why you can't afford to be without this proven resource in 2019.

Features and Benefits

Our EP/CRM experts address common questions, concerns and problem areas:

  • Overcoming physician documentation issues, specifically the highly technical language and missing details, that prevent you from assigning the correct codes
  • Diagnostic EP — what may and may not be coded
  • Coding rules and guidelines for the implantation, replacement and removal of temporary pacemakers
  • Coding and billing for device remote monitoring — an area of growth for many facilities

New and expanded content for 2019:

  • Step by step through many new, deleted and revised codes for reporting services and devices, including:
    • Leadless pacemakers
    • Wireless cardiac stimulation
    • Ischemia monitoring services
    • Subcutaneous quantitative monitoring services (loop recorder)
    • Pulmonary wireless pressure monitoring services
  • New chapters addressing NCD update for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); implantable hemodynamic monitors; wireless cardiac stimulators for left ventricular pacing; and transcatheter leadless pacemakers
  • Expanded guidance with coding for insertion of pacing electrode for left ventricular pacing with implantable defibrillator on the same day as an ICD initial implant

Clear, step-by-step guidance through the tasks you perform every day:

  • Coding, billing and documentation for a broad range of CRM devices and procedures, including pacemakers, cardioverter-defibrillators, subcutaneous defibrillators, electrodes, noninvasive program stimulation, EP studies, ablation and cardiovascular electronic device analysis
  • Covers code assignments by both hospital (technical) and physician (professional) entities

A proven approach to effective learning and quick reference for busy professionals:

  • Easy to navigate for all patient settings; content is organized into three main sections:
    • Basics and background information — includes explanations of common procedures, along with indications and Medicare coverage
    • Outpatient coding and billing — includes the various coding systems, hospital OPPS and ASC payments and coding for specific procedures
    • Inpatient coding and billing — includes ICD-10 coding system, MS-DRG payments and coding for specific procedures
  • Each section on specific procedures includes:
    • Description of the procedure and how it's performed
    • Appropriate CPT®/HCPCS or ICD-10 code assignments
    • Billing tips
  • Clinical examples to reinforce the correct application of current procedural codes and coding rules
