Thank you for being a valued subscriber to the CT/MR Coder for 2020. As you know, CT and MR services continue to face challenges when it comes to coding and compliance, we are eager to tackle those challenges together. We put all our energy into making sure your resources provide the most current and complete solutions to your everyday – and maybe not so everyday – coding, charge capture, and compliance questions and challenges. When updating the 2020 edition of the CT/MR Coder, our team paid extra attention to:

Detailed breakdowns of the codes and their use. It’s one thing to have a list of codes and descriptions, it’s another to understand how to use them. We have worked to make the application of these new codes as easy as possible.

Clarification of frequently miscoded services. From combination studies performed at the same patient encounter (i.e., CT/CTA, MRI/MRA) to 3D post-processing and avoiding unbundling – it’s all covered here.

Appropriate Use Criteria. With program implementation beginning January 1st, we made sure to include the latest information to ensure you’re fully up to speed and protected.

Also, if you haven’t already, check out our Compliance Question of the Week. This free, weekly newsletter brings common questions and answers straight to your inbox every Monday and includes a searchable archive. You can sign up here.

We look forward to partnering with you this year and providing you with the relevant news and information you need to meet the challenges ahead. Rest assured, your success is our top priority.

If there’s anything we can do to enhance your experience, or you feel something is missing, we would be happy to hear from you.
