Clearing up coding for GI/biliary imaging and interventions for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, this webcast provides guidance and instruction for proper application of biliary and gastric procedure codes.
Don't miss this rare opportunity as Jeff Majchrzak walks you through actual physician reports to help you get a strong grip on the nuances of reading and deciphering the multiple ways IR services are described. By the end of this webcast series, you'll be equipped to make the right code choices that deliver the full, legal reimbursement.
Wednesday, June 27
From arterial intervention to venous imaging, different physicians may describe the same vascular interventional radiology procedures in vastly different ways — adding to the inherent complexity and difficulty of IR coding and increasing the risk of noncompliant billing.
Wednesday, July 11
Providing instruction in coding for head and neck angiography and interventions, encompassing both arterial and venous studies.
Wednesday, July 18
From GI imaging to ablations and kyphoplasty, different physicians may describe the same nonvascular interventional radiology procedures in vastly different ways – adding to the inherent complexity and difficulty of IR coding and increasing the risk of noncompliant billing.
Wednesday, July 25
By popular request, Jeff Majchrzak tackles the interpretation of physician reports for a broad range of atypical, but ultra-challenging, interventional radiology procedures, both vascular and nonvascular.
Wednesday, August 15
Providing instruction in coding for upper extremity angiography and interventions, encompassing both arterial and venous services.
Wednesday, September 12
Providing instruction in coding for nonvascular catheter-based drainage procedures, this webcast will provide guidance for thoracentesis, paracentesis, fluid-collections, indwelling catheters, needle-based procedures.
Wednesday, October 10
Providing instruction in coding for venous studies, this webcast will provide special focus on 2018 code additions and changes for sclerosis and therapy of incompetent veins.
Wednesday, November 7
Providing instruction in coding for pain management procedures, this webcast will dive into coding for procedures such as vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, sacroplasty, epidural, transforaminal, facet injections, coding of imaging guidance, and more.
Providing instruction in coding for lower extremity angiography and interventions, this webcast will provide much-needed clarification and examples on angioplasty, atherectomy, infusion therapy and intravascular stenting procedures for both arterial and venous procedures.
During this 90-minute presentation, you will gain an understanding of the CPT® code series used to define these procedures (US and non-invasive vascular), address common mistakes, coding issues, and ways to avoid them so you feel comfortable coding these services as both stand-alone or combined procedures.
An in-depth review of CPT® coding for diagnostic and therapeutic genitourinary procedures, this webcast will answer common questions and address common coding errors with detailed explanations, tips, guidelines, and case examples.
Gain an understanding of common issues surrounding CT, CTA, MRI and MRA procedures such as coding and documentation rules for combined procedures (i.e. MRI and MRA), documentation required for CTA services, and when it's appropriate to charge for 3D post-processing.
Abdominal aortograms, lower extremity angiography, and arterial revascularization are services that have the highest coding error rates we see across the country. Complex procedures, even more complex coding rules, and often unclear documentation leave those responsible for coding these services in a tough position. We are here to help! Based on frequently asked questions and errors she most commonly encounters, this 90-minute session, developed by Cathy Huyghe, is designed to help you code completely, compliantly, and confidently.
