ICD-10-PCS: How Do I Code This?

March 23, 2019
10:00 AM – 11:30 AM ET

Having trouble assigning PCS codes? Are you receiving low audit scores from your reviewer? Join us as we discuss some areas in procedural coding where common errors have been identified. Examples include VAD such as CVC totally implanted, tunneled vs. non-tunneled, PICC and midline PCS coding.

We’ll also discuss other sometimes confusing procedures such as occlusion versus restriction procedures – in relation to aneurysm repair as well as coding flaps and grafts.
