SCHEDULE

Oct. 15, 2019
1-2 p.m. E.T.
Compliance and Ethics in the Coding World
Presented by: Cindy M. Pittmon, RCC, CHBME, FRBMA

What rules are regulations is required knowledge for coders? Join this session to find out what you need to know before you begin coding. During the session, participants will gain an understanding of federal regulations and the "do's and don'ts" of coding as it pertains to radiology. Participants will review and discuss compliance risk areas within your practices. Walk away knowing how to implement federal regulations appropriately based on your practices’ needs.

At the end of the session, you will:

• Evaluate your internal compliance policies.
• Understand CMS guidelines, including coverage policies, NCCI, and global surgical package.
• Apply and implement practical knowledge of federal regulations(including HIPAA, fraud, and abuse) to daily coding practice.


Oct. 17, 2019
1-2 p.m. E.T.
Anatomy and Terminology including Modalities
Presented by: Lori M. Shore, CPC, RCC, RCCIR

Because radiology is a medical specialty that requires an understanding of the entire human body, the session covers basic anatomy and radiology terms. During the session, participants will learn common terms and definitions and get practical tips for using the CPT book as a guide to finding the necessary help. Participants will also learn about the different modalities in radiology. Be sure to have your CPT-10 guide on hand for the session.

At the end of the session, you will:

• Define basic anatomy and functions of each body system.
• Identify common radiology terms and acronyms.
• Apply knowledge of the different modalities in radiology.


Oct. 22, 2019
1-2 p.m. E.T.
ICD-10 Medical Necessity - More Than One and Done
Presented by: Jenny Studdard, RCC, CCS-P, CPC, CPCO, ICD-10-CM AHIMA Approved Trainer

Knowing the guidelines for ICD-10-CM coding including specificity, sequencing, excludes is important. Why is it important and how do you know it is being done correctly? Great question. During the session, participants will understand the ICD-10 coding including sequencing, excludes notes, and specificity and how to balance the patient’s story with the production coding in radiology. Make this your session by sending your most difficult clinical statements that cause stress for assigning ICD10 codes by October 1. Then, during the session, we will discuss these cases and how to resolve.

At the end of the session, you will:

• Review and discuss the guidelines for ICD-10-CM coding including sequencing, excludes notes, and specificity.
• Balance the need to tell the patient’s story with the reality of production coding in radiology.
• Identify ways to benefit from data mining diagnosis codes within your own practice.


Nov. 5, 2019
1-2:15 p.m. E.T.
Non-vascular IR studies
Presented by: Jennifer Bash, RHIA, CPC, CIRCC, RCC

Aspiration, drainage, biopsies are just a few of the procedures that need to be coded within an IR department. Now, let’s add the G-tubes, J-tubes with their specific guidelines for replacement, removal and it becomes critical that coders enhance their knowledge of the rules on an annual basis. During the session, participants will review coding guidelines for the nonvascular procedure and the dictation notes supporting the assigned codes. With sample reports to enhance your knowledge, you will walk away with practical knowledge to apply immediately to your situation. A pre-work assignment will be sent prior to the session.

At the end of the session, you will:

• Recognize coding guidelines for the most common nonvascular procedures.
• Identify the key dictation points required to support the assigned codes.
• Apply practical knowledge using sample reports to increase your knowledge.


Nov. 7, 2019
1-2:15 p.m. E.T.
Vascular Studies
Presented by: Jennifer Bash, RHIA, CPC, CIRCC, RCC

Vascular coding skills are the foundation for many interventional procedures. This session will provide a solid foundation of anatomy and terminology needed to accurately assign procedure codes for the most common diagnostic procedures. Pre-work will be provided in preparation for this session.

At the end of the session, you will:

• Distinguish between vascular families and vascular territories.
• Determine how these terms impact code assignment.
• Apply practice knowledge using sample reports to enhance your skills.


Nov. 12, 2019
1-2:15 p.m. E.T.
Transcatheter Therapies: Tips, Traps, and Test-Taking Tricks
Presented by: Melody W. Mulaik, MSHS, CRA, RCC, CPC, CPC-H

Code assignment for stents, angioplasty, and even embolization is driven by the specific site for treatment. During the session, participants will get information on the current rules for assigning codes for the most common transcatheter procedures. In addition, become familiar with the rules for reporting both the diagnostic imaging and the treatment. Dialysis maintenance and spinal procedures will also be addressed in this fast-paced session.

At the end of the session, you will:

• Define the scope of a procedure - what is and is not separately reportable.
• Review those procedures with medical necessity requirements or restrictions for POS.
• Apply practice knowledge to sample reports to improve understanding.


Nov. 14, 2019
1-2 p.m. E.T.
Bridging the Gap: Translating Knowledge Into Test Questions
Presented by: Jenny Studdard, RCC, CCS-P, CPC, CPCO, ICD-10-CM AHIMA Approved Trainer, and Lori M. Shore, CPC, RCC, RCCIR

The primary reason that adults do not pass a standardized certification exam is the lack of of test-taking skills. The knowledge is there – but knowing how that knowledge may be presented in a standardized, multiple-choice format can be daunting. During the webinar, these presenters will share helpful resources to better prepare, provide test-taking tips and strategies to make the appropriate answer choices that will reduce anxiety as you prepare to take the test. 

At the end of the session, you will:

• Determine tips and skills for strategically answering test questions.
• Gain insight on resources available at the testing site and how best to utilize them efficiently.
• Apply to understand of best practices for test preparation.
