We’ll delve into a variety of operative reports during this interactive session and dissect how to locate the correct codes, when to use specific modifiers, when to code for the operating microscope, and when to assign unlisted codes. We’ll also evaluate ICD-10 coding for procedures, including coding for laterality. Get the scoop on the latest news on modifiers RT, LT, and 50. Gain expert tips and advice on documentation and the new 837P EDI standards for version 5010. You’ll also receive the tools you need to clear up discrepancies between pre and post-operative diagnoses.
