Coding, Compliance & Reimbursement

Because a single misstep can be very costly.

For guidance with your interventional radiology coding, why settle for anything less than the very best? There’s too much at stake! IR coding can be exceedingly difficult, with many areas of confusion: more bundling of IR CPT® codes, IR coding hierarchies for multiple diagnostic studies, MUEs/MAIs and more. It’s no wonder about 30% of IR cases are coded incorrectly, according to audits by our IR coding experts. This high error rate leads to a mammoth risk of underpayment or claim denials. Throughout the pandemic, radiology experienced a slash in service volumes making it even more critical to code compliantly. 

The industry-leading resources from MedLearn Publishing are designed to boost your coding accuracy — and instill coding confidence — while protecting your facility from payment denials, auditor take-backs and penalties.
