To Ensure That Ob-Gyn Coders And Billers Never Get Bored, CPT And Medicare Agreed To Revise The Rules And Codes Each Year. Not Really -- But It May Feel That Way.
Ob/gyn practices are bombarded with information every day and every year brings more and more changes. But THIS audio session will collapse the massive amounts of information into easily understood changes for 2013. Plus, Melanie Witt RN, CPC, COBGC, MA will weed out the misinformation so you know exactly what it takes to stay on track.
Join and get the "insider" information directly from the CPT annual symposium. You'll learn why the 2013 changes are being made and how to accurately use any new or revised codes or guidelines.
Melanie will also walk you through the new payment schemes for 2013, and give you details you can use to update your preventive and multiple procedure coding for Medicare patients.
So, don't risk delayed payments -- get up to speed on the CPT's Ob-Gyn codes for 2013.
Session will include:
Are you billing for observation services? This change to CPT may help your physicians document a higher level of service.
By now you have heard you have until October 1, 2014 to learn ICD-10. Tune in to find out where to find the teaching tools for free to get you trained and ready to take your proficiency exam. Also find out ICD9’s ‘take’ on some common questions the Coding Clinic has answered in 2012.
The proposed rules for Medicare changes are out, but what will finally be decided? This session will update you on the final decision regarding revalued codes, proposed continuity of care codes, prepayment reviews, the additional of some preventive service to the telehealth benefit, changes to allow NPP’s more freedom in ordering x-rays, and much more.
The OIG Work Plan is still looking for a few good audits. Learn about what the government has plans for in the way of claim scrutiny for 2013.
You could be getting unnecessary denials unless you know about these flu code changes.
