Once again, vascular surgery has undergone sweeping changes in codes and guidelines for key procedures. While other specialties are experiencing a slowdown in new codes, vascular surgery continues with new and revised codes keeping us on our toes! EVAR coding has been totally revamped with new, revised and deleted codes and concomitant changes in reimbursement. And when EVAR codes change it also means changes in TEVAR and FEVAR codes. New codes for endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy were also introduced this year. This information- packed webinar will explain these complicated code changes and more. Here's What You'll Learn to Code Correctly and Get Paid! New and revised EVAR codes. Eight new device codes and a potpourri of new, revised and deleted codes. Expanded exposure codes and a switch from primary to add-on status. And what add-on codes will mean for participation of other specialties. New codes for use of large sheaths and placement of endograft fixation devices. New extension codes with new guidelines. Inclusion of radiological S & I and catheter placement. How will these changes impact TEVAR and FEVAR coding? How to use the new chemical adhesive ablation codes. How do they compare to the RFA, laser and mechanochemical ablation codes in use and reimbursement? How to apply the new sclerotherapy codes. What’s the difference between compounded and non-compounded sclerotherapy?

Do you bill an office visit (E/M code with a 25 modifier) every time you see a patient in the office and also give an injection? Do you bill it 75% of the time? Do you know how much is too much? Medicare and private payers use predictive modeling to see if you may bill this code combination more than your peers. If you do, you may already be on your payer’s audit radar. Join us for this Zipinar (30 minutes start to finish!) to learn why payers are concerned about this code combination and how to avoid misuse and overuse. What you will learn in this Zipinar What is the 25 modifier and what is all the fuss about?  What do CPT and Medicare mean by pre-service time? Do I have to document the minutes I spend on the E/M portion?  What constitutes a separate and significant E/M? Does the documentation make or break when you can use the 25 modifier and bill both the E/M and the injection?  What about new patients? Isn’t it always OK to bill an E/M and the injection?
