Improve IR coding efficiency and accuracy rates with this unique resource

Interventional radiology coding accuracy rates remain at about 70% nationwide — meaning that 30% of IR cases are at risk for underpayment or claim denials. Our best-selling book, Interventional Radiology Coder provides your best protection against the threats to your IR revenues. From unique code selection menus to clear-cut guidance through troublesome gray areas, you won't find a better IR coding resource anywhere else!

Features and Benefits

Our IR coding experts address common questions, concerns and problem areas, such as:

  • Continuing confusion and questions stemming from recent major changes to coding for:
    • Biliary procedures — imaging, drainage catheters, stent placement/exchange, biopsy
    • Genitourinary procedures — imaging, stent placement/exchange, biopsy
    • Dialysis circuit — AV graft/fistula
    • Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR)
    • Cryoablation treatment for pulmonary tumors
    • Diagnostic bone marrow procedures
  • Coding for pain management and venous sclerosing/ablation procedures — significant sources of revenue for many IR providers
  • Proper application of bundled codes

Updated annually to address new and problematic areas:

  • Step by step through any new, deleted and revised codes for reporting procedures
  • Revisions to IR coding guidelines, plus any editorial revisions
  • New details and tips to assist with deciphering physician documentation
  • Expanded guidance based on frequent questions received throughout the year

Clear, reliable guidance through the tasks you perform every day:

  • Coding for hundreds of vascular and nonvascular IR procedures, encompassing both diagnostic exams and therapeutic interventions, including: diagnostic angiography, intracranial angiography, angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy, embolization, EVAR, FEVAR, TEVAR, dialysis graft/fistula and lower extremity revascularization
  • Covers code assignments by both hospital (technical) and physician (professional) entities

A proven approach to effective learning and quick reference for busy professionals:

  • Content is organized by body system (e.g., head and neck)
  • Each section includes:
    • Menus that walk you from the procedure descriptions, listed alphabetically, to the current radiological and surgical codes
    • Payment tables (RVUs and APCs) by CPT/HCPCS code
    • Coding tips for each coding example listed
    • Anatomical illustrations showing common procedures and the corresponding CPT codes
