Spine surgery is complex and time intensive for the surgeons that perform these procedures.  The coding for these service as can also be complex and time-consuming and it is critical that everyone involved has an understanding of the documentation necessary, and the proper assignment of CPT® and ICD-10-CM codes to ensure that the maximum possible reimbursement is received for all procedures that are performed. 

Areas Covered in the Session:
  •  Utilizing the proper CPT®, ICD-10-CM, and appropriate modifiers can make the difference in payment vs. denial. 
  • The way that a claim is coded describes the service and special circumstances that are present when there are complications from prior treatment. 
  • In this conference, we will use real examples of spine surgery the documentation to understand how we report the appropriate information on the claim for payment the first time. 
  • We will also review the most common denials and errors in reimbursement to give tips on how these should be appealed to insurance carriers.

  3. Laminotomy vs. Laminectomy, what is the difference.
  4. Assigning ICD-10-CM codes to identify the specific conditions and areas of the spine.
