Orthopedic Coding in ASCs - An Audio Conference

DATE: Wednesday, June 11, 2008

LENGTH: 90 minutes


ASC coding expert Stephanie Ellis of Ellis Medical Consulting will discuss orthopedic coding challenges in ASCs, and will help you to capture the reimbursement your center earns and deserves. If your ASC performs orthopedic surgery or will do so in the near future, you will not want to miss this seminar.

Stephanie will highlight:

  • New challenges presented by Final Rule additions and revisions of procedures to the Medicare list of ASC-approved procedures
  • Common coding errors with current procedures, such as chondroplasties performed with other knee procedures and subacromial decompressions performed with open rotator cuff repair
  • Challenges with coding implants
  • Modifier misuse
  • And much, much more!
