Coding for Wound Repair: Post Operative and Postpartum

Webcast image

October 11, 2016

Unfortunately, not every surgical wound heals without complication and obstetric wounds occur during the course of deliveries. Therefore, it is necessary to be prepared to appropriately report the services needed to address these conditions and receive payment apart from the global surgical or obstetric package.

Upon completion of the presentation, the participants should be able to:

  • Differentiate between wound care incorporated as part of the global surgical package or global OB package and services separately billable
  • Summarize differences in wound repair coding between Medicare and other third party payers
  • Apply modifiers and use appropriate ICD-10-CM diagnoses to successfully report complications unique to genitourinary and obstetrical wound repairs and related services
  • Implement concepts learned by completing case studies presented
