Pediatric Coding Top Tips and Pediatric CPT Changes 2013
Thursday, January 24, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (PST)
Palo Alto, CA
This webinar on pediatric code changes for 2013 will cover the changes general and specialty pediatrics need to make to ensure accurate and profitable coding in 2013. It will show proper usage of new and revised pediatric, E/M, and medicine codes including deleted code crosswalks and changed coding guidelines so that those coding for pediatric services and procedures can quickly get up to date.
Why Should You Attend:
CPT 2013 code changes will be effective Jan. 1, 2013. More than 30 code changes including new codes, code revisions, and deleted codes will impact pediatric coding. Pediatricians, coders, and office managers must be familiar with the new code changes and significant introductory note changes. Using deleted codes will cause denials and result in payment delays. Learning the new inpatient neonatal intensive care services and pediatric and neonatal critical care services guidelines is essential for correct coding in 2013.
This session is designed for any provider, educator, compliance director, consultant, office manager, or coder who is responsible for correct coding of pediatric medical services and procedures. The session will cover code changes, revisions, and deletions for pediatric CPT 2013 codes. The goal is to facilitate proper code usage and super bill updating to avoid claims denials on initial submission. The strategies also protect payback requests due to postpayment audits.
