From miscoding to missed revenue opportunities, we’ll help you bridge the gaps that hurt your bottom line
There are huge changes for Cardiology in 2022! As we have seen over the last few years, there are many new Category III codes affecting Cardiology for 2022. We will discuss in detail all the new codes along with the directives and parentheticals. We will also cover common coding and documentation errors still being seen in Cardiology. Maybe it’s miscoded cardiac catheterization or peripheral procedures, confusion about when to report peripheral angiography with coronary angiography, or documentation that doesn’t support coding for a lower extremity angiogram. Modifier misuse continues to be a serious concern in the cardiology world.
Whatever the issues that are undercutting your revenue and compliance, you’ll take away workable solutions from this annual webcast. In addition, you’ll get in-depth guidance with all 2022 code changes — clear definitions and actionable steps to ensure correct coding. Take control of the nagging issues and changes that may put your facility at risk for claim denials, underpayment and auditor action!
