Pain management is a complex field, and providers face intense scrutiny from many payors.

Whether performed in-office or in the ASC, most pain procedures are subject to detailed and restrictive coverage policies. Physicians who remain unaware of these policies risk denials, revenue loss, and potential audits and paybacks.

This intensive 7 module webinar series covers the most critical issues for this unique specialty. It’s packed with the knowledge and tools providers and their staff need to understand payor policies, get paid accurately, and improve the bottom line.

Using examples of payor coverage policy samples for pain treatment, we will show you how to incorporate payor policy guidance into your daily practice. You will learn how to dissect the clinical criteria to create the must-have documentation to justify coverage.

You will get an overview of ICD-10-CM coding for pain management to support medical necessity for the services you provide and ensure you are reporting your diagnoses accurately.

You’ll get an update on 2021 E/M services and review case studies to sharpen your documentation skills. Consultations, Emergency Department, and hospital E/M services will be reviewed.

You’ll learn interventional procedure coding for spine, joint, soft tissue, tendon, nerve block injections, PRP, and more, 2022 changes to interventional procedure codes, including new genicular nerve codes. We will address reimbursement essentials such as Medicare rules—including bundling and CCI edits.

Learning Objectives

  • Define documentation risk areas and understand how to avoid them.
