Walk through coding for venous imaging and interventions
Providing instruction in coding for venous imaging and interventions, this webcast will provide much-needed clarification and examples on vena cava procedures, treatment of lower extremity incompetent veins, endovenous ablation therapy, venous sclerosing, PICC and CVA procedures with examples and discussion of common coding errors. With in-depth descriptions of the procedures themselves, corresponding code choices and how those code choices change based on how the procedure was performed, reinforced with examples, case studies and anatomic diagrams, walk away confident when coding for venous procedures.
The agenda, covered by our presenter, Catherine Huyghe includes:
- Detailed overviews of venous imaging and interventions
- Review of anatomy, vascular families, procedures and corresponding code choices
- Treatment of lower extremity incompetent veins, spider veins, venous sclerosing and the different types of endovenous ablation therapy
- Peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) and central venous access (CVA) procedures
- Distinctions between arterial and venous coding
- Overview of CPT® codes and how they relate to procedures, anatomy and key phrases to look for in documentation
- Case examples and scenarios with an emphasis on the do’s and don’ts when coding for venous procedures
- Answers to frequently asked questions and, time permitting, answers to attendee questions
