Medical coders have a lot of new codes to work on every passing year. In 2017, for instance, CPT codes for pain management welcomed a new entrant -epidural injections. In 2018, there is talk of imaging guidance to these codes. CPT Assistant, the official AMA-published newsletter on CPT coding, has also come up with a new guidance regarding genicular nerve radio frequency.

Other changes have been getting introduced, or are in the offing of late. Consider these: there have been changes into fluoroscopic guidance billing for lumbar sympathetic blocks and stellate ganglion blocks. A CPT biller can now bill moderate sedation for some pain management procedures that was earlier bundled into this service. And, new viscosupplementation codes were introduced this past year.

More codes mean more confusion

What do all these changes into CPT coding mean? They mean lots of confusion to coders. The CPT codes apart, there are the voluminous Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) updates from the CMS to reckon with. Applying these CPT and HCPCS updates also requires precision in calculation of units appropriately and correctly.

This requires CPT and HCPCS coders to be on constant alert and on their toes, all the time. This webinar will explain the techniques to stay abreast of the latest updates and specifics on pain management CPT and HCPCS codes and help your office stay up-to-date on pain management procedures. Amy will discuss the most recent CPT changes. She will also review past CPT updates to commonly performed pain management services. HCPCS codes, and how to best find the medication that one is looking for, will also be taken up for discussion.

Amy will explain the importance of reading the parenthetical notes and the section guidelines, and of the need to be fully aware of the details for the CPT codes that coders submit. She will offer insights into the specifics of what has recently changed and how this could impact your coding and your practice.

Amy will cover the following areas at this webinar, which is aimed at Billers, Coders, Managers, MD’s, and any nursing staff:

- Recent CPT updates

- Pain management updates from CPT Assistant

- HCPCS update.
