1A:Peripheral Vascular Disorders

Sharon Jane Oliver, CPC, CDEO, CPMA, CRC, Approved-Instructor

Peripheral coding is a comprehensive area based on proper catheter selection as well as knowledge to identify the hierarchies required for correct reimbursement. The coder must recognize when to use the endovascular revascularization codes for the procedures on the legs vs. identifying when vascular family order is appropriate along with supervision and interpretation codes. A thorough understanding of the CPT guidelines to ensure correct coding is required.

1B:Let’s Simplify General Surgery Coding

Christopher Chandler, MHA, MBA, CPC, CGSC

General surgery is a specialty that covers a wide range of conditions and procedures. Due to this, there are numerous coding guidelines from many sources that can make this specialty particularly complicated. This presentation will help simplify general surgery coding by compiling and reviewing these various coding guidelines and have a detailed review of the procedures, diagnosis, and coding for breast procedures, hernia repairs, abdominal procedures, and more. We will review important CPT guidelines, CPT Assistance instructions, American College of Surgeons recommendations, and NCCI edits and guidelines.

1F:Reimagining E/M Office Visits for 2021 and Beyond

Zachary Hochstetler, CPC

The CPT® E/M office visit codes (99201-99215) are the most commonly billed codes in medicine, representing nearly a quarter of Medicare Part B spend annually. Over the past year, the AMA worked with numerous stakeholders, including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), commercial payers and medical specialty societies, to achieve the first overhaul of E/M office visit documentation and coding in more than 25 years. This new approach is a significant step towards modernizing patient care in the office that both reduces administrative burden for the clinicians and health care providers, as well as creates incentives to provide better patient care. Because these landmark revisions will affect nearly every specialty, the AMA led a consensus-driven, open and transparent workgroup process that engaged participants with diverse medical specialty backgrounds. As the health care ecosystem prepares for deployment of these changes on Jan. 1, 2021, the AMA continues to lead the charge on education and implementation so that the positive effects can be felt immediately. During this session, attendees will gain insight into the collaborative process behind the reimagined approach to office visits, an overview of the E/M office visit revisions, and the anticipated impact this first wave of revisions will have on other areas of E/M into the future.

3A:Coding Preventative Care Services

Shannon O'Tyson DeConda, CPC, CPMA, CPC-I, CEMC

Preventive care is often a confusing topic, and defining the differences between chronic disease management, wellness, IPPE, and AWV is often a confusing differentiation. Let’s also complicate that with a sick visit in conjunction with any of these preventive services- when is that reportable and what level of service can be billed with such a comprehensive encounter. During this session we will define each type of preventive encounter, the documentation expectations of each, as well as speaking to visits billable in addition to the preventive encounter. Attendees will leave with a checklist of documentation expectations, and modifier 25 considerations to ensure accurate documentation, billing, and reimbursement for services provided.

Leonta Williams, CPC, CPCO, CRC, CEMC, CHONC

Hospitals across the nation and globally have been deeply impacted by the high number of COVID-19 patient admissions. The virus and its related conditions have not only impacted hospital capacity, utilization rates, patient care/outcomes, but also documentation, coding, billing and reimbursement procedures. Medical coders and CDI professionals were introduced to a new virus which required new diagnosis code(s), coding guidelines and internal facility policies. As an industry, we are all still learning how to apply these new guidelines to make sure critical data is captured for research and reporting, accurate codes are assigned and proper reimbursement made. During this session we will review the ICD-10-CM guidance for coding COVID-19 hospital stays. We will discuss the most common respiratory conditions seen alongside this virus and we will work through some of the nuances of “positive test,” “negative test,” and “presumed positive test” results. We will address variations in principal diagnosis code assignment for COVID-19 admissions where sepsis, pregnancy or trauma is also indicated. This session will also include a look at DRG assignments through case examples. We are all in this together, so come prepared to share your experience, concerns and successes.

7F:E/M Guidelines 2021 - Documentation Hurdles

Jaci J. Kipreos, COC, CPC, CDEO, CPMA, CPC-I, CEMC

The new guidelines for 2021 provide a new way to evaluate the documentation associated with medical decision making. We have been provided with expanded definitions of some familiar terms and definitions of some new phrases. Along with this is still the need to document with clarity. The expectation of thorough documentation did not go away. In this session we will review the documentation requirements that may pose the biggest hurdle for your providers to over come. We will discuss strategies to help your providers understand the documentation that will be necessary to explain their work.
