What: Cardiac catheterization coding has been deemed one of the most difficult areas of coding. Coding cardiac catheterization and percutaneous cardiac interventions (PCI) can prove to be a very lucrative career track, but first you need to know more than basic CPT coding. This event will provide an overview of cardiac anatomy along with coding guidelines for diagnostic heart catheterization and PCI procedures.
The presenter will also discuss documentation requirements and present actual cardiac catheterization reports for extra practice.
A basic knowledge of CPT is recommended for attendees. All attendees are encouraged to bring a 2009 or 2010 CPT codebook for coding case studies.
