Covering imaging and interventional procedures performed in the upper extremities, this session will discuss the differences and nuances in code choices for angiography, angioplasty, atherectomy, embolization, infusion therapy, and intravascular stenting (for both arterial and venous procedures) with guidance on when each code is appropriate to use, and how those code choices can change based on how the procedure is performed.
Providing instruction in coding for upper extremity angiography and interventions, this webcast will provide much-needed clarification and examples on angioplasty, atherectomy, embolization, infusion therapy, and intravascular stenting for both arterial and venous procedures. With in-depth descriptions of the procedures themselves, the corresponding code choices, and how those code choices can change based on how the procedure was performed, reinforced with examples, case studies, and anatomic diagrams, you will walk away confident when coding for upper extremity procedures.
The agenda, covered by our presenter, Cathy Huyghe includes:
