Recorded June 19, 2018
The handout for this webinar has been updated with RVUs for 2019. For more about minor procedures, watch Coding for Skin Procedures in Dermatology, Family Practice, and Urgent Care, available on demand.
Medical practitioners often find it easier to do a minor procedure than to select the right code for a minor procedure. And coders struggle with the documentation in order to select the right type of service and the correct code within the category.
This one-hour webinar will describe the coding rules related to lesion destruction, laceration repair, wound care, removal of foreign body and other common in-office procedures. Each procedure requires specific documentation for accurate coding, and this webinar will define the requirements for each type of procedure. Coding procedures incorrectly can result in revenue loss and in compliance risk.
After the session, participants will be able to:
- Describe the documentation requirements for three common procedures performed in their practice
- Select location specific codes for destruction of benign lesions and foreign body removal
- Define how the area for debridement codes is calculated
