CPT Code Update

The AMA's Current Procedural Terminology code set for 2019 includes significant changes to CPT codes and descriptors. 335 codes have been changed to reflect scientific and technological advances in medical, surgical and diagnostic services.

Participants will learn how to use the new, revised, and deleted CPT® code changes, effective January 1, 2019. Updates include new telehealth codes for remote patient monitoring and consultation. Find out how changes to the codes and guidelines will affect your specialty. This class helps reduce denials and keep provider reimbursement on track all year long.

Class highlights:

  • Significant changes to CPT codes and descriptors
  • New CPT and HCPCS codes for Telehealth will provide new reimbursement opportunities for virtual check-in, remote evaluation of pre-recorded patient information and inter-professional internet consultation.
  • New Telehealth codes will allow doctors to bill for remote patient monitoring and internet consulting
  • 99446-99449 code descriptors now include EHR
  • Revised chapter guidelines include Non-Face-to-Face and Care Management Services
  • Text revisions to device evaluation codes to include Leadless Pacemaker
  • CMS adds originating sites and geographic exemptions for the treatment of end-stage renal disease and acute stroke this year.
  • Learn about the separate bundled payment for an episode of care of Substance Use Disorders (SUD) treatment including potentially web-based routine counseling.
  • Learn which specialties stand to gain or lose money under the proposed payment changes. When will the changes affect your providers, and could the changes lead to an increased audit risk?

This is an intermediate-level course designed for medical office coders, billers, auditors, clinicians, and practice managers. A course manual will be provided with helpful resources and links for use beyond the classroom. No coding books needed.
