Confident E/M and Office Coding

Friday, August 4th | Loews Vanderbilt Hotel

1:00 pm - 4:00 pm Central Standard Time 

KZA is excited to bring you the most up-to-date orthopaedic coding and billing guidelines to start the year off right.  As you kick off 2023, the last thing you want are disruptions in your practice as you get up to speed with the changes to the Evaluation and Management Services for hospital coding.  

This workshop can give you a foundation of knowledge to help you quickly embrace the new changes in the hospital E/M codes while reviewing the codes and guidelines for office or other outpatient E/M services. Roll up your sleeves and join us for hands-on coding of orthopaedic visits to master these new changes.

In this course we will take an in-depth look at the new 2023 hospital E/M guidelines and a detailed review of the office or other outpatient E/M guidelines as we present them in the distilled understandable format that is KZA’s signature. Dive into the details of APP billing for incident to, direct, and split/shared billing for Medicare claims, with a focus on applying the CMS criteria. Finally, we will review Radiology billing and how it relates to E/M Data criteria.  

Topics Covered
  • Recharge your knowledge of the CPT 2021 E/M requirements for Office/Outpatient services
  • Conquer the new CPT 2023 E/M guidelines for Inpatient, Observation, Consultations, and Emergency Department services
  • Identify and apply E/M modifiers accurately
  • Recognize when it is appropriate to report an E/M service with joint injections and other minor procedures
  •  Clarify Medicare’s incident-to versus split/shared reporting rules for APPs 

Proficient Surgical Coding

Saturday, August 5th |Loews Vanderbilt Hotel

8:00 am - 4:00 pm Central

Join us in discovering all you need to know for Orthopaedics to code and document accurately and efficiently in 2023. Each year brings coding and guideline changes, and it is more important now than ever to keep current on new and existing codes for coding accuracy. The 2023 AAOS Orthopaedic surgical procedure coding course sifts through all that is new and outstanding in Orthopaedic coding and packs it into an intensive, fast-paced day.

This year's agenda covers why documentation is as essential as the code selected, and how to capture all potential revenue by improving the specificity of your notes. We'll show you how the surgical global package impacts correct surgical payment modifier usage to optimize payment. You'll leave armed with ideas and techniques for setting up systems that reduce denials and increase successful appeals.

 This AAOS course also provides in depth and clinically relevant instruction on coding for Arthroplasties, Sports Medicine, Fracture care, Hand, Foot and Ankle and much more…

 Learn the latest coding, billing, and reimbursement strategies for new technology in ENT procedures. Finally, we’ll end with hands on coding of Orthopaedic operative reports and how documentation impacts the code selection process.

 Real-life cases and discussions that link clinical procedures to the selection of CPT codes make this course ideal for surgeons and coding staff. This course is packed with  examples of both office and hospital clinical scenarios with a comprehensive workbook that will become your first response coding resource.

Learning Objectives

  • Navigate and apply AAOS Global Service Data (GSD) and Medicare NCCI guidelines.
  • Know when to utilize surgical modifiers correctly to support reimbursement.
  • Master important changes to the CPT 2023 musculoskeletal guidelines that impact drug delivery devices.
  • Review 2022 revised instructions for fracture reporting, removal of implants/ foreign bodies and coding infected joint procedures.
  • Demonstrate surgical coding knowledge through practice exercises.

    KZA education is based on real world consulting. We’ve taken a microscope to practices just like yours—whether you are in private practice, groups, hospital employed or in academia—and found the weak links.

    Friday, August 4th |Loews Vanderbilt Hotel

    Is your practice as profitable as it could be? 

    If you aren’t sure, attend this workshop.  It’s filled with urgent advice about how to seal up revenue leaks. Ask yourself:

    • Are my practice managers providing solid monthly reports—including detailed denial reports?
    • Do my Accounts Receivable reports separate patient-owed dollars from insurance debt?

    If not, you need this workshop. We’ve seen badly managed practices leak up to six figures from gross income.

    KZA education is based on real world consulting. We’ve taken a microscope to practices just like yours—whether you are in private practice, groups, hospital employed or in academia—and found the weak links. We’ll show you how practice profits are lost including:

    • Delays in prior authorization and denials after submission
    • Worker’s Compensation plans that pay by credit card
    • Deceptive AR reports
    • Failure to collect patient deductibles and co-pays
    • Billing companies that figure “out of sight, out of mind.”  (Sadly, they are often right.)

    No more fudging! Learn the bookkeeping details that can grow your revenue—ethically and legally. Bring key staff. We guarantee a solid return for the time and money invested.
