Description

Podiatry is a provider specialty in which the coding and reimbursement rely heavily on services performed in the office setting, therefore Podiatry practices need to make sure they know the current coding updates for 2019 that will affect them, as well as implement these changes in a timely manner.

Podiatrists have strict policies, dictated by the State in which they practice, and understanding the scope of practice in their state, and applying rules and guidelines to make sure they are not only submitting correct claims, but they are reporting everything they can for reimbursement, and what is considered inappropriate to bill.

In 2019, there are new diagnoses codes for myalgia and Medicare’s final rule for E&M services will bring a possible major change for podiatrists. Don’t forget the new biopsy and allograft codes for 2019 and revised documentation guidelines for DMEs.

Attend this webinar by expert speaker, Lynn M. Anderanin to get a detailed view and insights on the coding updates in podiatry that will impact your practice in 2019. Get the right information that will result in correct coding and billing for clean submissions of claims. Also, learn about the latest updates and changes for podiatry that are already in effect or will come into effect from January 1, 2019.

Handout: You will receive a PPT with useful information and web resources for ready reference later.

Session Highlights:

  • The re-coding of different methods of biopsies
  • New allograft codes and when they can be used by Podiatrists
  • New changes to Medicare’s Local Coverage Determinations (LCD)
  • Latest information on Medicare’s final rule for Evaluation and Management Services (E&M) in 2019 and beyond
  • New coding for custom inserts for diabetic patients
