The coder will learn how to avoid some of the most prevalent errors when coding radiology procedures, to include unbundling, incorrect use of modifiers, and incorrect units of service. The high volume or coding error-prone procedures will be discussed with explanation of what the procedure entails and what is included. The presentation will concentrate mostly on diagnostic radiology, but also cover key compliance issues in ultrasound, CT, and MRI.The information presented will assist the coder in confidently selecting the appropriate procedure codes for radiology procedures. Inappropriate unbundling will be avoided and add-on procedure codes will be accurately selected. This will lead to a reduction in the number of post-bill corrections and may improve cash flow.
You Will Learn:
- Key concepts of radiology coding – what’s included, what’s not
- Use of modifiers in radiology
- Physician documentation requirements
