Overview: Learn specific examples how to use modifiers to report services and procedures accurately and effectively. With the coming implementation of ICD-10, proper documentation will be more important than ever.This sixty-minute Webinar will provide a wealth of information concerning documentation for a wide variety of procedures and environments.
In addition to the code for the specific procedure or service provided to the patient, there might be times when you will have to apply a modifier. Modifiers are two-character codes that add clarification and additional details to the procedure code's original description, as listed in the main portion of the CPT book. At times, the modifier provides necessary explanation to the third-party payer that directly relates to the reimbursement that the facility or physician will receive.
Why should you attend: In this webinar you will learn how to code with modifiers and all modifier guidelines. Modifiers create clear, concise communications between the provider and payer, and are essential to the coding process. This webinar uses real-life modifier scenarios and medical records to guide correct CPT® and HCPCS modifier usage. This webinar will provide guidance on how and when to use modifiers in order to avoid costly payment delays and denials.
