2017's Biggest Urology Coding Issues & Revenue Opportunities : Webinar

Speaker: Michael A. Ferragamo - Jr., MD, FACS

2017 brought new reimbursement opportunities and potential hazards for urology practices. You need to steer clear of reporting the new epidural and moderate sedation codes with virtually any urology procedure. Wondering why?
G codes for therapy related to stress urinary incontinence don’t add to your reimbursement. However, omitting them from your physiotherapy claims – or using them incorrectly – will lead to denials!
Looking for practical insight on 2017 updates, and analysis in urology coding and billing?

Join this complimentary webinar to put yourself on the path to successful coding and reimbursement for your urology services. Listen to our preeminent urology coding expert Michael A. Ferragamo - Jr., MD, FACS as he sheds light on coding and billing issues critical to your bottom line.
