Picture of the product2019 Breast and Bone Density Procedure Coding Guide

A how-to guide for determining accurate coding for mammography imaging and interventional procedures.

For one of the most commonly provided areas of imaging, which is seeing continual advancements in technology, you can’t change the complexities of coding and billing for breast and bone density procedures. But you can make your job a lot easier with the help of this unique how-to resource. Created for both hospital and professional (physician office) staff who preform coding and billing functions, it walks you through the Medicare coding and billing requirements for a full range of diagnostic and interventional procedures.

The Breast & Bone Density Procedure Coding Guide features efficient navigation and clear presentation of essential information. Throughout the book, you’ll find at-a-glance charts with CPT®/HCPCS and revenue codes, Medicare payment tables, concise code descriptions, helpful coding examples, and quick billing tips.

This proven handbook is comprehensive, too. Besides mammography coding, it covers a broad range of breast imaging procedures, including digital breast tomosynthesis, plus interventional mammography, imaging guidance, and bone density (DEXA/DXA) coding.

Like many of your peers, you’ve probably encountered tough questions and challenges. For example, how do you correctly report a screening vs. diagnostic mammogram? What are post-procedure mammogram coding guidelines when the biopsy, localization, clip placement, or other procedure was performed under a modality other than mammographic guidance? Rest assured, our Breast & Bone Density Procedure Coding Guide delivers the answers and assistance you need!

Picture of the product2019 CT/MR Coder

From common to complex procedures – resolve questions and avoid costly mistakes.

Just one misapplied code or insufficient documentation mistake coding for CT and MR procedures can significantly impact payments and compliance.

As healthcare continues to evolve with rapidly expanding technologies, challenges with coding guidelines and documentation requirements become more complex. Plus, the sheer volume of CT and MR procedures being performed makes it critical to ensure charges are being captured, completely and compliantly.

The CT/MR Coder, whether in a hospital or professional (physician) setting, will guide you through coding for a full range of procedures – CT, CTA, CTC, MRI, MRA, MRS, MRV – with procedure and code descriptions, documentation requirements, guidelines, tips, FAQ’s, and case examples to bring you quickly and accurately to the correct codes.

You know that CT and MR codes are some of the most commonly used, yet can be among the most difficult to assign. The CT/MR Coder walks you through the most common questions and challenges, such as; What documentation is necessary to code and bill for 3D rendering? What are the key distinctions when coding for CTA vs. CT? What are the rules for coding combined MRI and MRA procedures? What is the correct CPT® code for CT/CTA of the heart? How do you code multiple joint MRI’s in the same extremity? Resolve these questions and more right here and avoid costly errors!

Picture of the product2019 Ultrasound Coder

Find the codes you need for diagnostic & interventional ultrasound procedures

As healthcare continues to evolve with advancing technologies for both diagnostic and interventional ultrasound procedures, so do their coding and documentation requirements which present confusion to many in the field. Regardless of your facility setting of hospital or professional (physician), or if you offer services in both, the Ultrasound Coder will provide you the answers to questions such as: What is the appropriate use of modifier 59 with ultrasound procedures? How do you code for intravascular ultrasound? What are the coding guidelines for complete vs. limited scans? Along with many more.

The Ultrasound Coder will guide you through a full range of procedures, including diagnostic ultrasound, ultrasound guidance procedures, fetal and non-fetal echocardiography, noninvasive vascular ultrasound, and intravascular ultrasound. With features like at-a-glance coding charts, quick billing tips, mini-case studies, and frequently asked questions and answers, you’ll promptly find the essential information you need to do your job as accurately and efficiently as possible.

As you know, ultrasound coding comes with a lot of challenging questions — which translates to a high risk for noncompliance. For example, with no specific CPT®-defined code, how do you correctly report FAST exams? Which CPT code should you use for ankle brachial index (ABI) assessments? Do you know when to use OB vs. non-OB ultrasound codes? What are the appropriate codes for soft tissue ultrasounds? Do you have the required documentation to support billing for duplex ultrasound studies?

So many questions, and just one place to go for answers: our Ultrasound Coder book. Don’t struggle with ultrasound coding any longer!
