Coding for Office-based Procedures

     OCTOBER 10, 2017


PRESENTATION DESCRIPTION

As technology advances and a greater number of procedures can be performed in the office setting, the need to accurately and appropriately code and bill for these services becomes more and more important. However, there are number of challenges associated with this process—both in accurately associating diagnosis codes to the procedures and clearly reporting the services to third party payers.

OBJECTIVES

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

  • List procedures commonly performed in the OB/GYN office and identify circumstances in which separate Evaluation and Management services can be billed in 
    conjunction with these procedures.
  • Distinguish common complications and variants of procedures that require special coding to accurately report the service.
  • Predict circumstances in which third party reimbursement for office procedures may be delayed and develop strategies to shorten the payment cycle.
  • Design work-flow processes to ensure that adequate information is collected/reported to facilitate proper billing for office-based procedures
