Arthroscopy is one of the most common surgeries in Orthopaedic Surgery. Because of the amount of reimbursement paid out on related CPT® codes, insurance carriers and Medicare are reviewing these codes frequently, causing changes to policies and other coding rules. This webinar will review the most current CPT® codes related to arthroscopic surgery for the hip, knee, and shoulder, and the latest updates to the Medicare National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) policy manual and commercial insurance carriers.
