Coding for Multiple Services on the Same Day

About the Webinar

In every healthcare setting, there are occasions in which multiple services are provided to a patient on the same day and/or during the same encounter. Whether in the office, in the hospital, or in the surgical suite, OB/GYN providers will frequently need to bill for multiple distinct procedural or cognitive services.

This presents a number of challenges because of coding rules and payer guidelines that may result in denials when multiple services are billed on the same day. To be effective, providers and coders must be aware of the elements necessary to receive appropriate reimbursement for multiple services.

At the conclusion of this session, the attendee should be able to:

  • Appraise billing opportunities when multiple E/M services are provided on the same day
  • Explain the role of diagnosis code assignment in receiving payment for multiple services
  • Articulate the basic principles of surgical bundling
  • Define strategies for responding to third party payer denials for multiple services
