In-depth discussion of coding for abdominal imaging and interventions
Providing instruction in coding for abdominal/visceral angiography and interventions, this session will discuss the differences and nuances in code choices for a full range of services, including visceral component coding, aortic endograft procedures, with guidance on when each code is appropriate to use, and how those code choices can change based on how the procedure is performed. With in-depth descriptions of the procedures themselves and corresponding code choices, reinforced with examples, case studies and anatomic diagrams, you will walk away confident when coding for abdominal procedures.
What’s on the agenda:
- Abdominal/visceral angiography
- Overview of CPT® codes and how they relate to procedures, anatomy, and key phrases to look for in documentation
- Abdominal interventional procedures
- Arterial and venous with review of anatomy, procedures, and corresponding code choices
- Aortic aneurysm repair including EVAR/TEVAR/FEVAR and new codes for iliac endografts
- Imaging guidance – when it can and cannot be separately reported
- Case examples and scenarios with an emphasis on the dos and don’ts when coding for abdominal procedures with key phrases to look for in documentation
- Answers to frequently asked questions and, time permitting, answers to attendee questions
