Coding for Routine Ob-Gyn Office Services

Oct 13, 2020

About the Webinar

As it becomes possible for more procedures to 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.

At the conclusion of this session, 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
