Don’t Miss the Latest Orthopedic Updates, Reimbursement Opportunities, and Pitfalls

Many practices are accustomed with coding and billing for orthopedics, but how well do you know guidelines and policies to reduce denials that could cause delayed reimbursement? When it comes to reporting for shoulder arthroscopy, rib fracture repairs, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair, or knee aspiration, you may not be aware of payer requirements — both from a coding and documentation point of view.

This year, there have been numerous changes to CPT® codes, such as a new marrow aspiration code and revised observation codes. If you haven’t stayed updated with it all, however, you may not be supporting the coding you are submitting.

Don’t worry! Orthopedic Coding Alert has got your back.

Orthopedic Coding Alert is the only monthly coding and reimbursement newsletter you need to stay informed, compliant, and profitable. It’s written by medical coding expert Chris Boucher, MS, an editor with 15 years of experience in coding. We’ve also got a coding expert on call: consulting editor Heidi Stout, BA, CPC, COSC, PCS, CCS-P, reviews every issue for accuracy and relevance for you, the orthopedic coder.

Each issue will help you stay updated on:

  • CPT® coding
  • ICD-10 changes
  • MACRA and its impact on your practice
  • Quarterly CCI edits
  • OIG focus areas
  • E/M guidelines
  • 2018 fee schedule
  • Correct use of modifiers
  • NPP billing
  • HIPAA compliance requirements.
