The "Other" Codes: Ensure Coding Accuracy and Appropriate Reimbursement
Melody Mulaik, MSHS, CRA, RCC, RCC-IR, CPC, COC, and Lori Shore

In additional to CPT(R) procedure codes there are other codes that radiology providers must use to appropriately reportly report provided services. Category III codes and HCPCS codes are special codes that must be used in a variety of circumstances including, but not limited to, the location of where services are provided. This session will review these codes and how they are appropriately utilized for imaging services to ensure correct coding practices. Additionally, HCPCS modifiers will be reviewed with a special focus on the JW modifier to ensure no revenue is lost on discarded injectable waste.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Determine when Category III and HCPCS codes are required for accurate claim submission.
  • Review HCPCS modifiers to determine when these should be used in lieu or in addition to, regular CPT modifiers.
  • Review JW requirements to identify regulatory requirements and potential revenue opportunities.

Navigating the Massive Changes in E/M Coding for 2021
Mary L. Horkey, RCCIR, RCC

For the first time in many years CPT and CMS have announced major changes in documentation code assignment for evaluation and management services in the office/outpatient setting which could provide the radiology group with additional opportunities to code for these services. In addition we will review the changes in the code structure, the addition of codes for prolonged services and changes in determining the level of service based on time or medical decision making.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Interpret documentation requirements under the updated rules
  • Demonstrate appropriate use of the new prolonged service codes
  • Apply the new Table of Risk for medical decision making
