Overview: This Webinar will help you establish(or re-establish for some of us) a Catheter coding foundation.Beginning with defining the common physician/specialty phrases and words we encounter we will start to understand the building blocks of Selective and Non-selective catheterizations, access sites and laterality as described by the physician documentation.What is included in these codes will be a topic for discussion as will notes or indicators as to other procedures the physician may have performed that are separately billable.
The main body of the presentation with provide plenty of "hands-on" practice scenarios including a basic 5 Step Guide to capturing each catheterization code and when to add more than one! As we explore through the Five Catheter Coding Zones, Arterial (upper and lower Diaphragm), Venous, Pulmonary and Portal areas, we will cover 26 common scenarios plus unique coding exceptions to each Zone that you will want to take special note of.
Finally, our discussion will close with a review the current CPT® codes that bundle these catheterizations and the (much needed) incentive to keep going in this ever-changing specialty.I hope you can join us for this valuable discussion!
Why should you Attend: Catheterization codes are complex, high paying Interventional Radiology Codes that many practices and offices perform every day.Building a correct foundation in capturing these codes is an absolute must in this industry. Incorrect coding of these procedures can cause thousands of dollars in lost revenue or even thousands of dollars in overpayment making your practice subject to legal fees, back-payment and fearful audits.
Education is they key to avoiding overpayment that could appear negligent or worse yet, intentional. Protect your practice by inter-office education and establishing skills that will last year to year.
