In-depth discussion of coding for dialysis circuit IR procedures

Providing instruction in coding for imaging and interventions performed in the dialysis circuit, this webcast will provide much-needed clarification while addressing common coding errors and frequently asked questions. With in-depth descriptions of the procedures themselves, the corresponding code choices and how those code choices relate to the procedure performed, key phrases to look for in documentation, case studies, and anatomic diagrams – you will walk away with the tools to quickly, accurately, and confidently arrive at the right code choices for dialysis graft/fistula procedures.

The agenda, covered by our presenter, Cathy Huyghe includes:

  • Definitions of the dialysis circuit, anatomy involved, and procedures performed
  • CPT Codes 36901-36909
    • Code definitions and guidelines for use
    • What’s included in each code and the appropriate use of add-on codes
    • How the codes relate to procedures, anatomy, and key phrases to look for in documentation
    • How do code for central segment work from a separate access
  • Discussion of common coding errors and how to avoid them
  • Case examples and scenarios with an emphasis on the do’s and don’ts when coding for dialysis circuit procedures
  • Answers to frequently asked questions and, time permitting, answers to attendee questions

Note: Before participating in this session, we recommend that you attend our Basics of Interventional Radiology Coding webcast, which covers general IR coding essentials.
