From GI imaging to ablations and kyphoplasty, different physicians may describe the same nonvascular interventional radiology procedures in vastly different ways – adding to the inherent complexity and difficulty of IR coding and increasing the risk of noncompliant billing. In this MedLearn Publishing webcast, prominent IR coding expert Jeff Majchrzak will explain, in his unique clear-cut style, the diversity of terms, vernacular and slang physicians use to report the same nonvascular IR procedure. Along with increased understanding, you'll gain confidence in your coding and billing.
What's on the Agenda:
- A review of the nonvascular IR procedures, both diagnostic and therapeutic, that present coding and billing challenges, including imaging and interventions of the genitourinary, gastrointestinal and biliary systems, as well as biopsies, aspirations, drainage, ablations, vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty and more
- Using actual reports, identification and interpretation of the multiple ways physicians describe these procedures, from subtle variations to entirely different words and phrases
- How to translate this new understanding into the appropriate CPT® code assignments, 100% compliant billing and the full, legal reimbursement
- Time permitting, answers to attendee questions
Who Should Attend:
Coders, billing staff, revenue cycle manager, compliance staff, HIM staff, physicians who perform these services and radiology staff who oversee or are involved with IR coding.
