What's Separately Reportable? (Understanding Bundling)


      APRIL 11, 2017 



Third party payers may deny certain services as bundled together. Understanding the appropriate guidelines used to determine surgical bundles may significantly decrease the number of denials and/or provide the practice with information for successful appeals. This webcast will explain the guidelines used to determine surgical bundles and how to apply these guidelines to surgical coding. The CMS National Correct Coding Initiative and the application of the associated modifiers will be reviewed. 


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

  • List all of the major laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures performed by Ob/gyns, as well as the similarities and differences between the various procedures.
  • Define best practices in multiple procedure billing, including key principles related to bundling and unbundling these surgical services.
  • Respond effectively to payer denials for laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures.
  • Outline the method in which services are billed when a laparoscopic procedure is converted to an open surgical procedure.
