One webcast covers correct coding for CT, MR, ultrasound and breast imaging

The severe financial challenges of 2020, coupled with ongoing pandemic-related impacts and payment cuts for 2021, have accentuated the importance of correct and compliant coding for diagnostic radiology services. Quite simply, capturing every legitimate dollar of revenue depends on a clear understanding of current codes, coding guidelines and documentation requirements.

In this new MedLearn Publishing webcast, trusted radiology coding and compliance expert Donna Richmond covers these essential topics, applicable to a comprehensive set of diagnostic radiology services, including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging/angiography (MRI/MRA), ultrasound and breast imaging.

Webcast Takeaways:

  • Discussion of CPT®/HCPCS codes specific to MRI/MRA, CT, ultrasound and breast imaging
  • Review of CMS and AMA coding guidelines for these services
  • Clarification of payer documentation requirements, including examples of good and incomplete documentation
  • Guidance with areas of confusion and noncompliance, including:
    • ICD-10-CM coding for diagnostic exams that may be reported as a screening
    • National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) edits specific to the discussed diagnostic radiology exams
    • When multiple exams may be coded together and the documentation needed to support each
    • Codes for contrast materials and the requirements for reporting these codes
  • Case examples to illustrate and reinforce key concepts
  • Time permitting, answers to attendee questions
