Proficient Surgical Coding

Saturday, August 5th |Loews Vanderbilt Hotel

8:00 am - 4:00 pm Central

Cost: $925

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.
