    $499 | 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.

    Cost $499

    Total Runtime: 7 Hours

    CEU Accreditation: This program has the prior approval of AAPC for 7.0 continuing education hours. Granting of prior approval in no way constitutes endorsement by AAPC of the program content or the program sponsor.

    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

    Jump Start Your Skin Biopsy Coding

    This content remains current for 2022.

    Skin biopsy procedures have changed. For many years we have used 2 codes to report skin biopsies; CPT 11100 for the first lesion and 11101 for each additional lesion biopsied after the first lesion on the same date of service.  These codes included all methods of removal.  The new code ranges are CPT 11102-11107 and are reported based on method of removal which allows for greater specificity.  New guidelines were created to help with coding and reporting of these codes.  It is imperative to develop a clear understanding of the new codes and requirements to get paid right the first time.

    Colorectal Surgery Coding and Reimbursement Bundle

    Coding for complex colorectal procedures? Scratching your head when trying to figure out which codes fit which procedures?  You’re not alone. Colorectal coding requires knowledge of the anatomy involved as well as specific terminology that describes the procedures performed.

    For surgeons, the CPT code description may not be consistent with the clinical language you are accustomed to using (or what’s included in the code selection list from your EHR!). For coders, knowing how a colostomy is different than a coloproctostomy, can be the difference between a correct code and an incorrect code, not to mention a difference in payment!

    Whether you’re a coder or a surgeon, understanding the codes and the necessary documentation will facilitate accurate and optimal revenue and RVU calculations; essential if you are a surgeon compensated by RVU production.  

    Join KZA consultant Teri Romano, in a webinar designed specifically for improving coding and documentation of colorectal procedures.  Presented in two interesting and information-packed modules, the modules can be viewed as a set or alone depending on your individual coding education needs. Case scenarios are included in each module to guide the real-life application of codes to surgical procedures.

    Module 1 will answer:

    • When are two surgeons co -surgeon and when are they primary and assistant? Does specialty matter?
    • What’s the difference between modifiers 58 and 78 and how are they used in colorectal procedures?
    • How is moderate sedation documented?
    • How is colonoscopy reported if the cecum is not visualized?
    • Can more than one polyp removal be reported?

    Module 2 will answer:

    • What’s included in colorectal surgery? What about an endoscope after the surgery to check the anastomoses? What about an omental flap?
    • How is a low pelvic anastomosis with a diverting ileostomy instead of a colostomy reported?
    • What does a hand-assisted procedure mean and how is it reported?
    • What differentiates a simple versus complex destructions of anal lesions?
    • What’s the difference between a fistula and a fissure?
