New Coding Guidelines for Nerve Conduction Studies in 2013 by Marvel J Hammer
Having expert advice about the hottest neurology topics like this means you can boost your coding accuracy, decrease denials, and safeguard your payments
Online PR News – 09-January-2013 –Neurologist treats occipital neuralgia; youíll need to identify which nerve was treated and the insertion site. Learn how to identify the correct nerve injected and to code it appropriately.
Having expert advice about the hottest neurology topics like this means you can boost your coding accuracy, decrease denials, and safeguard your payments. Thatís why you should keep yourself current with neurology audio conferences.
AudioEducator brings you the New CPT codes guidelines to report Nerve conduction studies in 2013. Even though the new codes are based on the total number of tests performed, coders will still need to know what constitutes a single nerve conduction study in order to compliantly bill for their providerís services.
What if your practice uses preconfigured electrodes to perform nerve conduction studies? Does coding for those diagnostic tests also change?
Does your provider ever perform these diagnostic tests in a facility rather than their office? How does that change your billing?
Although some payers have some type of coverage policy with limitations on number and/or type of nerve conduction study tests performed, and diagnoses that support medical necessity for these diagnostic studies.† How will these change as per the 2013 CPT codes for nerve conduction studies?† What are your options for payer denials?† Appendix J remains in the CPT codebook, but was also revised for 2013.
To learn more, join our expert speaker Marvel J. Hammer, RN, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, ACS-PM, CHCO who will walk you through the coding best practices, different components, acronyms and terminologies viz-a-viz nerve conduction studies.
In Addition to it, she will also review CMS supervision requirements, CPT codes and Appendix J to discuss appeal payer denials for these diagnostic tests. She will ensure your nerve conduction studies get the best reimbursement they deserve.
Audio Conference is schedule on 29 January 2013 at 10 am PT. To register now log on to:
