Make the most of your wound care and debridement claims.
The last several years have brought major changes to how you report wound care services — including guideline revisions, CPT® code additions, and new documentation challenges. For instance, you may know that physicians perform active wound care procedures to remove devitalized and/or necrotic tissue and promote healing, but did you know that to report these services, the physician must have direct (one-on-one) contact with the patient?
To make certain your wound care claims are error-free, you should attend this vital conference, provided by expert presenter, Margie S Vaught. Register now!
This session will help you answer these questions:
What is the difference between wound debridement, open fracture debridement, and active wound care procedures?
What surgical debridement documentation do I need for all three different debridement CPT® code ranges?
How are non-selective wound care codes, selective wound care codes, and application of wound vacs different?
What are the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) and CPT® bundling rules?
What payer/carrier policies and interpretation issues should I be aware of?
How should wound care coding look?
Worthwhile bonus: Be sure to ask a question at the Q&A session that follows the live event. You’ll get advice that’s specific and tailored to you — straight from our expert presenter.
Who should attend? Coders, Billers, Office Managers, Practice Manager, Orthopedic Surgeons
