Commonly performed, yet all-too-commonly miscoded — this sums up the state of affairs for CT and MR services. When repeated over a huge volume of procedures, even the smallest coding or billing mistake can have a significant financial impact. In this webcast, Jeff Majchrzak, BA, RCC, CIRCC, will make sure you possess a clear understanding of how to correctly report the latest codes for CT/CTA and MRI/MRA services, and he'll walk you through the dos and don'ts of some of the most problematic coding and billing scenarios.

What's on the agenda:

  • A review of current CPT® and HCPCS codes for CT/CTA and MRI/MRA procedures, including new codes for 2019 pertaining to:
    • Breast MRI, with and without CAD – what you need to know about the changes, what's missing and where HCPCS is counterintuitive
    • MR Elastography
    • Knee arthrography
  • Focus on actionable solutions to problematic coding and billing scenarios, including:
    • Combination studies performed at the same patient encounter — what can be billed separately, and what's inclusive?
    • Compliant documentation, and what to look for to charge CTA
    • Abdomen, pelvis or abdomen and pelvis
    • Abdominal aorta with run-off
    • Reconstructed spine images
  • Answers and insights on common questions:
    • When, and how often, 3D rendering (76376/76377) can be charged
    • How to decipher reports, and know what to charge, when multiple MRI/MRA exams are performed at the same encounter
    • CT limited or localized follow-up study code 76380 – what is meant by this and what is the current use
  • Documentation and billing best practices, ensuring support for your code assignments and the full appropriate payment
  • National Correct Coding Initiative language and edits, specific to MR and CT procedures
  • Real-life case examples that reinforce key concepts and illustrate coding dos and don'ts
  • Time permitting, answers to attendee questions
