About this program

Gastroenterologists provide both medical and surgical services. Clinicians and coders must successfully navigate coding and payer guidelines and master complex coding challenges. Proper documentation is essential for correct code assignment and to demonstrate medical necessity to avoid claim rejections and denials.

Join Sharon Turner for this lunch and learn session to learn about the coding changes and the CMS Physicians Fee Schedule final rule details that impact billing for gastroenterology in 2022.

This year CMS implements changes to beneficiary cost-sharing obligations related to Colorectal Cancer Screening and there are new MPFS payments for peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) and some capsule endoscopy CPT codes. Proper documentation is essential for correct code assignment and to demonstrate medical necessity to avoid claim rejections and denials. Payers have local coverage determinations (LCDs) for many procedures and testing, along with approved diagnosis codes. Review guidance for append modifier 51 (multiple procedures) and modifier 59 (distinct procedural service).
