Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

Join Maxine Collins for this comprehensive review of the CPT coding manual. Participants in this program will deepen their understanding of each major section of CPT and comprehend the unique set of rules, notes, and instructions necessary for proper procedural coding in all sections. Clinicians may select the codes, but coders need to master identifying the main terms and verify the selected procedure(s) or service(s) align with the provider's supporting documentation in the medical record.

Do you have a solid grasp of fragmenting, bundling and unbundling? Can you identify CPT symbols with ease and fully comprehend notes? Do you regularly refer to section guidelines and append the proper modifier(s)? If you are not 100% confident in your level of skill, this program will benefit you and your employer. Get up to speed on the most current guidelines to improve accuracy, reduce claim denials and audit scrutiny, and ensure that your providers receive correct reimbursement on every claim.
