With more than 135 ICD-10-CM changes and 69+ CPT® updates, general surgery coders are among the most impacted in 2019. You’ll need to navigate changes for eyelid neoplasm, post-procedural infection, appendicitis, FNA, allograft, transcatheter insertion or replacement or removal of permanent leadless pacemaker, and more.

Then there’s last year’s challenges that continue to best even veteran general surgery coders, such as nailing down biopsies, excisions, and shave removals. Your practice stands to lose significant pay if you don’t have a solid grasp on the requirements for coding each, as well as a keen understanding of the many code options from which to choose. In fact, among practices that frequently perform these procedures, it’s not uncommon to accrue significant annual loss, sacrificing $20 to $100 per lesion.

Don’t risk your hard-earned pay.

Leverage vital, to-the-point monthly guidance to boost your reporting accuracy and your coding know-how. We make it convenient for your team to stay informed, compliant, and profitable with a risk-free subscription to TCI’s General Surgery Coding Alert.

Every issue of General Surgery Coding Alert lays out a wealth of information, breaking down the challenges you face and delivering money-in-the-bank answers to questions like:

  • The surgeon extracted a fluid sample from an ovarian cyst using ultrasound guidance. The op note states, “suspicious for ovarian tumor.” Please advise how to correctly code this case.
  • Can I separately report the take down of adhesions performed during a partial colectomy?
  • Can we count a “complete” ROS when the surgeon includes a statement such as “A 10-point ROS was negative” in the exam notes?

avoidable denials, reckless audit risks, and costly payback demands.
