PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Many hospital and clinic settings continue to struggle with injection and infusion coding. Although the CPT code range for injections and infusions only comprise of a very small fraction in comparison to the other sections of the CPT codebook, these codes continue to pose as a challenge for coding professionals. There are specific guidelines to strictly follow when capturing these complex codes. Failure to report the correct injection and infusion codes may negatively impact submitted claims, fail an external audit, or be at risk for non-compliance.

Are intramuscular injections part of the hierarchy? Can we report multiple initial services? Is dehydration the only diagnosis required when reporting hydration services? When do we apply a modifier when reporting hydration services? Can we report an infusion if an IV push injection is documented for more than 15 minutes? Can we report concurrent service when multiple substances are mixed in a bag? Can we report an IV push if a short duration infusion is missing a stop time?

Join us in this informative educational webinar as we conquer these challenges and apply complete, compliant coding practices. We will perform hands-on coding of various case scenarios and prepare for incoming audits surrounding these complex codes. Whether you’re a new or seasoned coding professional, manager, educator, or student, join us as we walk through the coding guidelines, CPT hierarchy, start and stop time documentation, and many more.
