Shoulder Surgical Procedures—What You Need to Know for 2020 and 2021


Code Shoulder Procedures with Confidence. Coding and bundling for shoulder surgical procedures is not easy, but you are still on the hook to know what’s new for 2020 and 2021. CCI guidelines and edits have changed, there are plenty of concerns about what documentation is needed and what payer/carrier issues are at the forefront, and new surgical techniques and procedures will keep you on your toes.

Don’t stress! Margie Scalley Vaught has your back. Vaught has more than 30 years of experience in coding and office management, as well as in orthopedics, and she earned her CPC in 1995. When it comes to shoulder surgery coding, there’s no one better to keep you up to date.

Join Vaught for this fast-paced webinar ‘Code Shoulder Procedures with Confidence’ as she helps you code shoulder procedures with confidence. You will learn when modifier 59 is appropriate from both the CPT and CCI standpoint, how to find out what your payer/carrier reimbursement policies are, what is needed to support extensive vs. limited debridement, when you can report 29826 and what you need to do it, and how you can help your physicians understand the importance of documentation.

If you code shoulder surgery, this webinar is mandatory! Don’t get any farther into 2020 without knowing more about the codes and documentation requirements.
