Hayes, Inc., a leader in promoting better health outcomes through the use of evidence, is hosting a webinar on the implementation of new CPT codes for molecular testing on March 20, 2012, at 1:00 pm ET. Diane Allingham-Hawkins, PhD, FCCMG, FACMG, Director of the Hayes Genetic Test Evaluation Program, will be the featured presenter at this complimentary 1-hour live webinar.
“Previously payers struggled to make coverage decisions for molecular tests due to the lack of a specific CPT coding system,” says Dr. Allingham-Hawkins. “The recent issuing of CPT codes for nearly 200 genetic and molecular tests by the American Medical Association offers clarity to both payers and providers. Hayes is providing this webinar as a hands-on approach to effectively implementing the use of these CPT codes to evaluate the appropriate utilization of these tests.”
The target audience for this webinar includes payers and providers interested in learning more about the implementation of the molecular CPT codes. These include health plan care managers, claims specialists, medical coders and coding specialists, physicians, and laboratory managers.
