Arthroscopic surgery makes up a major number of surgical cases in Orthopaedic Surgery.  Because insurance companies spend a large amount of reimbursement on these common procedures, the guidelines and policies are ever-changing to meet the changes in the actual procedures themselves.  We will discuss the current guidelines and policies from CPT®, AMA, AAOS, CMS, and even commercial carriers like Aetna.

Areas Covered in the session:
The expectations of this conference are that the attendee upon the completion of the conference should have an understanding of how current guidelines and policies are affecting coding an reimbursement, and get the upper edge on current coding trends for these procedures, as well as up and coming technology and treatment.
