Getting the Scope of Joint Procedures in CPT

Far and away the most common procedures performed in orthopedics are joint procedures. Although we as coders see these services often, if we don’t keep up with the CPT code set as well as the rules and regulations, our skills can get a bit rusty. In this session we will help you sharpen your skills for coding joint procedures in CPT so that accurately reporting is a breeze.

Topics include:

  • CPT codes for joint procedures including: Arthroplasty, Joint Injections, Arthrotomy, Arthrodesis
  • CMS Rules and Regulations
  • Documentation Requirements for Medical Necessity

and more.

Attend this session to learn to:

  • Utilize learned information to make logical decisions regarding coding for joint procedures.
  • Apply rules for selecting the diagnosis and achieve medical necessity for reported services.
  • Describe key CMS rules and regulations specific to joint procedures and apply this knowledge in your own facility.
