Now you can understand the correct application of radiology CPT codes with this authoritative guide from the ACR and AMA. A quarterly newsletter, it provides expert advice and guidance of especially high value to the day-to-day needs of the radiology coding professionals.
Radiology practices across the country have placed a high priority on improving claims reporting and reimbursement accuracy. This newsletter was developed to help coders understand the practical application of CPT codes with regard to radiology coding - not just by giving the correct codes, but by teaching coders what to look for and how to approach even the most difficult clinical examples. Inside each of the issues you will find:
- Clinical examples - Several clinical examples including carefully selected procedure reports, dissected and annotated by nationally recognized experts in radiology coding with detailed rationales and helpful tips
- Radiology Coding Q&A - E-mail questions directly to the newsletter staff and selected questions will be answered in future issues
- Documentation Challenge - A real-life radiology service report plus insightful and detailed commentary provide concrete suggestions to improve procedure reporting and coding
- Self Quiz to test the reader's knowledge
- Professional Coders can earn CE credit toward AAPC, AHIMA and/or RCC certifications, with on-line, interactive tests
In addition to four quarterly, 12 page newsletter issues, subscribers will also receive two Special Report Bulletins to them informed with the important issues and news directly related to radiology
Please remember: The government no longer allows a grace period for annual code sets. The new HIPAA Transaction and Code Set Rule requires providers to use national medical code sets that are valid at the time that a service is provided. ICD-9-CM code revisions become effective October 1st each year while CPT and HCPCS code revisions become effective January 1st. In order for you to meet this requirement, you must have the revised CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-9-CM codes in your possession before the implementation dates. The best way to do this is to order your code books early. Review current coding resources.
