Successful Surgical Coding Workshop - ACS

Total Runtime: 6 Hours 27 Minutes

The ACS surgical procedure coding course sifts through all that is important in general surgery coding and packs it into an intensive, fast-paced six and a half hours. This agenda covers all you need to know to code and document accurately and efficiently in 2021 and beyond.

Real-life cases and discussions that link clinical procedures to the selection of CPT codes make this course ideal for surgeons and coding staff. Forget boring slides and a mind-numbing list of CPT codes. This course is rich with clinical scenarios and a comprehensive workbook that will become your first-response coding resource.

The course provides in-depth and interesting instruction on coding for endoscopy, colorectal, breast, hernia, appendix, gall bladder, liver, intraabdominal tumor, pancreatic, and endocrine procedures. 

The course describes why documentation is as essential as the code selected and how to capture all potential revenue by improving your notes. We'll show you the correct way to use surgical payment modifiers so that you optimize payment. You'll leave armed with ideas and techniques for setting up systems that reduce denials and increase successful appeals. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Distinguish different categories of codes and how payment differs
  • Describe what is included in a global surgical package and what can be reported separately
  • Distinguish what surgical modifier to report
  • Describe documentation requirements for unlisted codes
  • Demonstrate correct coding and documentation for radiology services
