Second session in a two-part series, this webcast covers advanced infusion coding and auditing.
Infusions provided in the observation and medical oncology settings can challenge even the most seasoned coders and charge capture staff. For instance, how do you determine the correct number of drug administration code units when a patient receives a series of IV pushes together with IV administrations? This session will take on complex coding and billing scenarios for infusion services, giving you confidence that your charge capture is correct and that the clinical documentation will back you up.
What's on the Agenda:
- Advanced-level review of drug administration CPT® coding hierarchies
- Revenue and compliance impacts of common errors and omissions, such as missing stop times for non-chemo infusions
- Navigating difficult issues with National Correct Coding Initiative procedure-to-procedure (PTP) edits and medically unlikely edits (MUEs); for example, when can you code for the insertion of a PICC with drug administration codes?
- Working through documentation challenges, such as how to handle interruptions in IV infusions, plus a review of documentation best practices
- Case studies that involve complex coding and billing scenarios in the observation and medical oncology departments; specific services to be discussed include:
- Non-chemo intravenous therapy
- Subcutaneous/intramuscular injections
- Hydration therapy
- IV line maintenance
- An examination of the audit findings for each case, culminating in corrected code assignments and charges
- Time permitting, answers to attendee questions
