Are you up to date on 2020 code changes?

Effective Oct. 1, 2019, orthopedic practices have several ICD-10-CM codes to take note of, especially if your practice treats congenital foot anomalies. CPT® also released its list of additions, revisions, and deletions for 2020, which will take effect Jan. 1. Learn what you’ll need to know to about all the 2020 code updates.

In addition to understanding ICD-10/ CPT® code and guideline changes, you’ll also need to keep up with the latest HCPCS codes, regulatory updates, CCI edits, revisions to modifiers, payer policies, the fee schedule, OIG target areas, and more.

Don’t risk your hard-earned pay.

Tap into essential monthly guidance to boost your reporting accuracy and your coding know-how. Stay informed, compliant, and profitable with TCI’s Orthopedic Coding Alert.

Every issue of Orthopedic Coding Alert breaks down the challenges you’ll face and delivers answers to questions like:

  • How do I differentiate calcaneal from talus fractures or how do I correctly report a fractured forearm?  
  • Can I submit codes for an elbow arthroscopy and an elbow arthrotomy during the same session? What about a pre-procedure E/M service; is that separately codeable?
  • 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?


Avoid claims denials, audit risks, and costly payback demands.
