Take The Guesswork Out Of Gyn Oncology Coding.
Gynecological oncology coding cases can be a nightmare, given the seemingly endless number of procedures – and combinations of procedure – that treat different types of cancer. It is not only important to know what was done by the surgeon but it is also important to pick out codeable diagnoses in support of what was done.
Join expert speaker Melanie Witt, RN, CPC-OGS, MA, for this 1-hour audioconference that'll turn a coding nightmare into a solid understanding -- that pays off on your claims. She'll walk you through the essentials of gynecological oncology coding from diagnosis to procedure combinations so that you can get each claim right the first time.
