Covering nonvascular catheter-based drainage procedures, this session will discuss the differences and nuances in code choices for thoracentesis, paracentesis, fluid-collections, indwelling catheters, needle-based procedures and sclerosing with guidance on when each code option is appropriate to use, what’s bundled and what’s inclusive and when multiple codes may be reported.
Providing instruction in coding for nonvascular catheter-based drainage procedures, this webcast will provide guidance for thoracentesis, paracentesis, fluid-collections, indwelling catheters, needle-based procedures, and sclerosing. With in-depth descriptions of the procedures themselves, the corresponding code choices and how those code choices may change based on how the procedure was performed, reinforced with examples, case studies and anatomic diagrams, you will walk away confident when coding for catheter-based drainage procedures. In addition will discuss two new C codes created by CMS for ASCs.
