CPT Power Coding Workshop

CPT Power Coding 

We will delve into the global period, including coding for pre-op and post-op visits. Next you'll learn how to select surgery modifiers that optimize payment and reduce risk. 

Then, we will jump into surgical procedure coding, including code changes in Otology/Neurotology, Rhinology, and Facial Plastics. New for 2020: learn the latest coding, billing, and reimbursement strategies for new technology in ENT procedures. Finally, we'll end the day with ancillary services, including audiology, allergy, and in-office CT.

Learning Objectives:

  • Choose surgery modifiers that optimize payment and reduce risk. 
  • Use surgery coding that meets CPT rules and government regulations for commonly performed procedures. 
  • Integrate ENT subspecialty coding principles in otology/neurotology, rhinology, laryngology, facial plastics, head and neck surgery, and sleep surgery. 
  • Demonstrate comprehension on how to code for new ENT technology procedures. 
  • Apply new and revised otolaryngology CPT codes into your practice.
