Properly Billing for Moderate Sedation Services Webinar

Learn more about this event

In 2017 Moderate (Conscious) Sedation work RVUs were removed from all CPT® codes. Many practices experienced a decrease in reimbursement when RVUs were included in unexpected sedation codes. This is not limited to endoscopy codes such as colonoscopy or bronchoscopy. There are a considerable number of codes containing cardiology and other subspecialties that are included.

Facilities are leaving reimbursement dollars on the table when they do not bill for moderate sedation services provided to patients.

Understanding the major changes to sedation codes and concepts for endoscopy in 2017 is a must. This webinar you will give you simple, straightforward explanation of these concepts to help you work efficiently and effectively. You will also be able to communicate the changes with providers to help them accurately reflect their work and receive the reimbursement they may be missing.
