Correct Coding for Laparoscopic Hysteroscopic Procedures

About the Webinar

Laparoscopic procedures are one of the most effective surgical resources in the gynecologist’s tool kit and in-office hysteroscopic procedures are becoming increasingly popular for both physicians and patients. Therefore, it’s critical that physicians and their billing staff understand the key principles of billing for these services.

At the conclusion of this session, 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
