Conflicting guidelines and chronic areas of confusion continue to increase the risks when coding and billing for mammography and other breast imaging services. This is especially problematic given the high volume of these procedures — one small mistake or omission, when repeated, can add up to significant issues.

With so many variables, it's critical that all staff possess a clear understanding of the process in its entirety – from order to exam through coding and billing. You can count on this webcast, presented by preeminent radiology coding expert Donna Richmond, BA, RCC, CIRCC, CPC, to leave you with a solid foundation of best practices, guidance through unclear guidelines, and actionable tips to avoid common mistakes.

Webcast Takeaways:

  • A review of current CPT® and HCPCS codes specific to mammography, digital breast tomosynthesis, ultrasound, MRI and other breast imaging techniques including elastography
  • Discussion of differences between CPT and CMS coding guidelines
  • Review of appropriate diagnosis codes for breast imaging
  • Tips and discussion on choosing the right codes for percutaneous biopsy, localization, post-procedure mammograms and specimen imaging
