Are you sure you are capturing all billable services? Are you confident that services are medically necessary and otherwise supported? Where compliance is concerned are you certain all rules have been properly adhered to? Questions like these are real concerns for many surgical practices.

This workshop is designed to help coders eliminate missed opportunities, rejections and to significantly reduce risk of errors in coding. It is designed to provide a simple Five Step framework for coders who are working with or without Computer Assisted Coding software (CACs) to better ensure that all services are documented and coded accurately.

You will learn how to increase your analysis skills and handle challenging operative reports. You will learn how to use the Five Step framework for operative report coding and billing and methods for achieving best results. Get modern techniques to strengthen your skills, ensure every billable service is reported for payment, and handle tricky coding situations.

This Workshop Will Help You:

  • Master the art of identifying services rendered but not documented
  • Use the modifier-22 and unlisted procedure codes--and get paid
  • Code accurately for every service rendered--every time
  • Step-by-Step Review real operative report examples

This process applies to all surgical specialties:

  • Easily interview physicians to identify missing documentation
  • Learn about working with CACs to achieve the most accurate codes
  • Report unlisted procedures and get paid for them
  • Best practices for avoiding unbundling mistakes
  • Proper use of modifiers 51 and 59 and the specialties most affected
