Coding Pearls and Pitfalls in Urology: What You Need to Know This Year

Live Webinar | Michael Ferragamo | From: May 07, 2019 - To: May 29, 2019
Description

Increase Your Reimbursements with these Urological Coding “Pearls"

Urological coding keeps getting more complicated every year. With so many coding changes taking place, it takes time to learn the new rules, edits, coding regulations, and documentation requirements. The new, revised, and deleted ICD-10 and CPT® codes (this year, with more changes to come next year) have increased the chances of coding and billing errors, thereby making you even more susceptible to claim denials, loss of revenue, and, in worst cases, expensive litigations.

Avoid all that by staying on top of the latest changes in urology coding and billing with Dr. Michael A. Ferragamo in this informative audio conference. Dr. Ferragamo will review the most important coding changes ("Pearls") in urology, along with the common errors ("Pitfalls") that can trip you up and lead to claim denials and revenue losses. He will provide didactic explanations with specific clinical scenarios throughout the webinar to bring to light the urological coding Pearls and Pitfalls. This will make it easier for you to recognize the correct coding for the numerous clinical situations that might arise in your urological practice – and steer clear of the pitfalls.

After attending this session, you will know how to code for repeat TURPs; how to bill for treatments of multiple bladder tumor; when to add additional ICD-10 diagnostic codes to insure full payments; when a bladder biopsy becomes a TURB (Transurethral Resection of the Bladder); new coding for endoscopy and treatment of intestinal urinary diversions; new coding for laparoscopic procedures without specific CPT® codes, and much more!
