Breaking down a broad range of IR coding fundamentals
Providing a foundation for interventional radiology coding, this webcast is an opportunity to reset and get grounded in a broad range of coding basics – covering terminology, vascular anatomy, modifiers, CCI fundamentals, and bundled and component coding rules for diagnostic and therapeutic vascular IR services. It also includes the ACS new 2023 C codes and who should or should not use them, and discussion about the new 2023 modifier that applies to IR services. Case Studies will be used to illustrate and pull all the elements together.
This webcast is essential for the other sessions in the Interventional Radiology Coding Series, and crucial for a solid understanding of vascular IR coding guidelines with answers to common questions and discussion of common coding errors while providing tips, insights and guidance to ensure confidence when coding for IR services.
