2019 Cardiology Coding Updates
Get proven tips for coding electrophysiology (EP) services, cath lab, modifier usage in cardiology, and so much more.

AudioEducator, a division of audio conference and corporate education leader ProEdTech, will host the live, 6-hour Virtual Boot Camp titled “2019 Cardiology Coding Updates” with cardiology coding expert Terry Fletcher on November 29 – 30, 2018 (3 hours/day).

This information-packed cardiology coding boot camp will take an in-depth look at correct coding for cardiology services in 2019, and help attendees to catch up on all the new, deleted, and revised ICD-10-CM and cardiology CPT® codes – as well as the Medicare updates that will impact the cardiology specialty in 2019.

The two-day cardiology coding boot camp will provide useful coding tips for a range of conditions – including coding electrophysiology (EP) services, cath lab, modifier usage, and more – in four 90-minute sessions per details below:

  • Session 1: 2019 CPT®, ICD-10-CM & Medicare Updates

Duration: 90 minutes
Date: Thursday, November 29, 2018
Time: 1:00 PM EST to 2:30 PM EST
CEU: 1.5 AAPC CEUs

This session will cover all the coding updates for CPT® and ICD-10-CM for 2019, as well as all the Medicare updates that will impact the cardiology specialty. Attendees will learn all the new, deleted, and revised 2019 codes for cardiology, along with clinical examples and guidance on code linking.

CEU: 1.5 AAPC CEUs

In this session, attendees will learn the new cardiology CPT® definitions and what’s in store for E&M auditing in the coming year. Attendees will find out what “same specialty or subspecialty” means, and how to pass an audit when reporting E&M and a diagnostic on the same date. Fletcher will explore the potential disconnect between Medicare and CPT® in the auditing process, and dive into medical decision-making (MDM) to make sure that correct code is captured for maximum reimbursement.

  • Session 3: Cardiac Cath and PCI Coding for Cardiology with PV Bonus Coding

Duration: 90 minutes
Date: Friday, November 30, 2018
Time: 09:00 AM EST to 10:30 AM EST
CEU: 1.5 AAPC CEUs

In this session, cardiology coding guru Terry Fletcher will reveal expert techniques for making cardiac cath and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) coding more accurate and less frustrating. Attendees will learn proper coding for right and left (R&L) heart caths versus Swan Ganz Catheter, left heart catheterization (LHC) versus coronary angiography (Cors) only, and cardiac caths and graft injections. Fletcher will also discuss the correct ways to append modifiers in the cath lab; CPT® versus Medicare rules for benzathine penicillin G (BPG) injections and PCIs; the rules for highly-weighted code for AMI, and the moderate conscious sedation coding for 2018 and 2019.

  • Session 4: Endovascular Repairs for AAA and Pseudoaneurysms

Duration: 90 minutes
Date: Friday, November 30, 2018
Time: 11:00 AM EST to 12:30 PM EST
CEU: 1.5 AAPC CEUs

In this session, attendees will get a handle on the 2018 changes, and learn the latest tweaks to cardiology codes for the coming year. Attendees will learn the new codes assigned for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair, treatment of pseudoaneurysm, dissection, penetrating ulcer, or traumatic disruption of the aorta or iliac arteries. They will also learn the two main keys to selecting the correct endovascular repair codes: 1) the clinical indication; and 2) the type of device that is placed, and more.
