CPT Coding 101 for Everyone
Anyone can read a CPT manual and pick a code, but not everyone can pick the correct code. Unless you know how to optimally use your 2017 Coding Manual, you can count on choosing the wrong code, getting your claims denied, and watching your reimbursement go down.
This is a real problem in smaller practices where the office manager, physician or front desk manager is responsible for choosing the most appropriate code. This can be disastrous, because they've never actually been trained on how to really utilize the CPT coding manual accurately and to their benefit. That's why Lynn Anderanin, CPC, CPPM, CPC-I, COSC, CPMA has created this 60-minute training, CPT Coding 101.
You can access this quick, down and dirty, training session at any time. It will get your entire team up to speed. This plain-English, step-by-step session is specifically for healthcare professionals (both clinical and administrative) that are involved in the coding process (even peripherally), but haven't been formally trained in coding (or are just starting out).
Here are just a few of the practical, usable tactics you’ll receive by completing Lynn’s training:
• Master CPT manual symbols – without them you’re guessing
• Easy-to-understand E/M guidelines that will give you confidence in the levels you are choosing
• Stop letting modifiers get in the way of correct coding – really learn how to use them
• Maneuver through your CPT manual faster and easier AND pick the right code
• How to really use your medical terminology knowledge to your benefit.
• And so much more…
Make sure that you, your staff and your providers have the necessary knowledge to ensure your claims are as accurate as possible and you get paid more of what you deserve by completing this easy-to-understand training.
Coding correctly and filing accurate claims is a team effort. This session will help your entire team make this happen. Don't miss out on this must-attend training session, order today!
