About the Webinar
Insurance companies across the nation are becoming stricter in their definition of medical necessity for ultrasound services. This requires that providers clearly document their services with greater clarity and select their codes with precision.
After attending this session, participants will be able to:
- Differentiate between the use of obstetric ultrasound codes and non-obstetric ultrasound codes
- Accurately report “complete” vs. “limited” ultrasound services
- Identify circumstances in which the use of multiple ultrasound codes is acceptable
- Construct documentation (ultrasound reports) that meet payer requirements for claim submission
