A broad and thorough understanding of the CPT coding system leading to correct and defensible code selection is essential for coders working in the outpatient setting or physician practices. Learn CPT coding with the unique perspective and expertise offered by nationally recognized CPT coding expert Gail I. Smith!
CPT®: Procedural Coding provides a unique approach to mastering CPT coding. Breaking it down to three steps of progressive learning, Gail I. Smith is your active instructional partner, teaching you what you need to know:
Gain foundational understanding of the CPT coding system and its unique attributes
Learn how CPT coding accurately captures procedures in the different body systems
Practice your new CPT skills on real-world procedural cases
Step 1. CPT: Procedural Coding starts with foundational knowledge. Coders learn the principals governing accurate and complete CPT coding in any setting and any body system.
Organization and structure of CPT
Applying CPT guidelines for accurate code assignment
Abstracting information from a medical record and translating operative procedure notes to an accurate CPT
Understanding the unique tools within CPT to refine code selection
Correctly applying Modifiers including differentiating between physician-only and hospital outpatient modifiers
Evaluation and Management coding (including examples previewing the changes for 2021!)
Impact of NCCI edits
Step 2. Armed with this foundational knowledge, coders learn CPT coding for a broad range of outpatient procedures:
General Surgery for all body systems: Integumentary, Musculoskeletal, Respiratory, Cardiovascular, Digestive, Urinary, Male and Female Genital, Nervous, Eyes and Auditory
Step 3. Practice, Practice, Practice! As a final step, coders put it all together and practice their CPT coding skills on 50 carefully selected real world outpatient surgical cases to reinforce learning and challenge coding skills.
CPT: Procedural Coding features:
On-demand, instructor-led, active learning featuring nationally recognized CPT coding expert Gail I. Smith. Let Gail show you how!
Critical decision-making skills and enhanced clinical knowledge to differentiate code selection.
Documentation drivers for accurate code assignments
