Description Biography Continuing Education

All physician reports are NOT created equally. This is especially true – and acutely problematic – for those who code interventional radiology procedures. As our IR coding expert and webcast presenter Jeff Majchrzak has observed repeatedly, physicians use a diversity of terms, vernacular and slang to describe the same procedure.

Consequently, coders struggle to interpret physician reports and select the appropriate codes. For IR providers, this can mean forfeited revenue or noncompliant charges.

Don't miss this rare opportunity as Jeff walks you through actual physician reports to help you get a strong grip on the nuances of reading and deciphering the multiple ways IR services are described. By the end of this webcast series, you'll be equipped to make the right code choices that deliver the full, legal reimbursement.
