Power Up Your Interventional Pain Coding -
You will learn
Pain management is a complex field, and providers face intense scrutiny from many payors.
Whether performed in-office or in the ASC, most pain procedures are subject to detailed and restrictive coverage policies. Physicians who remain unaware of these policies risk denials, revenue loss, and potential audits and paybacks.
This intensive 6 module Webinar series covers the most critical issues for this unique specialty. It’s packed with the knowledge and tools providers and their staff need to understand payor policies, get paid accurately, and improve the bottom line.
Using examples of payor coverage policy samples for pain treatment, we will show you how to incorporate payor policy guidance into your daily practice. You will learn how to dissect the clinical criteria to create the must-have documentation to justify coverage.
You will get an overview of ICD-10-CM coding for pain management to support medical necessity for the services you provide and ensure you are reporting your diagnoses accurately.
