Clarification of component code use and much more

This webcast provides instruction in IR coding for venous studies. Among the topics to be covered by our presenter, Jeff Majchrzak:

  • Bundled coding options for venous embolization, sclerosing, angioplasty and stenting
  • Options, rules and assignments of component codes
  • Differences between coding for tunneled and non-tunneled placements and removals
  • Coding for angioplasty, stenting and other transcatheter therapy procedures
  • Documentation to support and substantiate imaging guidance coding and billing
  • Billing for contrast studies with line/device placements: When is it allowed, or when are these services packaged?
  • Coding for stripping/disruption procedures
  • Billing for therapeutic vena caval procedures

What did attendees of the 2016 webcast find most valuable about this session? Here's some of the feedback we received:

"Explanation of the individual access sites and coding them."

"Jeff's knowledge and the way he explains things."

"The examples."

"Explanation of parenthetical notes."

Note: Before participating in this session, we recommend that you attend our 2017 Basics of Interventional Radiology Coding webcast, which covers general IR coding essentials.
