Hone your reporting skills and secure your deserved pay with vital monthly guidance to defeat top-trending orthopedic claim issues

Orthopedic coding is not without its challenges. In addition to nailing down ICD-10, CPT®, and HCPCS code and guideline changes, you need to keep pace with regulatory updates, CCI edits, and revisions to modifiers, payer policies, the fee schedule, OIG target areas, and more.

Don’t risk your hard-earned pay.

Take advantage of vital monthly guidance to hone your reporting accuracy and boost your coding know-how. TCI’s Orthopedic Coding Alert makes it easy to stay informed, compliant, and profitable.

Every issue of your risk-free subscription to Orthopedic Coding Alert lays out a trove of time-saving information, tackling the challenges you face and delivering money-in-the-bank answers to questions like:

  • How should I code the extensive debridement of a patient’s injuries when the notes indicate that the provider performed “debridement, subQ tissue, 37 sq cm total”?
  • What’s the difference between M79.67 (Pain in foot and toes) and M25.57 (Pain in ankle and joints of foot), and how do I know which code to select for a patient complaining of pain in the right ankle region?
  • Why was my claim denied when I reported 29873-RT for the surgical lateral release on a patient’s right knee?
  • For ICD-10-CM coding purposes, what is the difference between unclassified pathological and recurrent wrist dislocations? Would you code these injuries with the same diagnosis codes?
  • Should I include both diagnoses codes for a patient who underwent a 3-view ankle X-ray for a left, displaced lateral malleolus fracture and a 2-view X-ray for left, upper end fibular fracture?

Protect your practice from avoidable denials, audit risks, and payback demands.

Rely on our orthopedic coding experts to equip your team with high-impact tips and guidance to defeat the revenue-risking issues that threaten your claims and compliance success.
