“Who makes up these rules, anyway?” If you’ve ever asked that question, or been asked that question, this webinar is for you. It’s not idle curiosity. Knowing where the coding rules come from leads to the source documentation, and accurate and compliant coding. The coding and reimbursement system is anything but simple. This webinar will explain how services are paid in fee-for-service medicine, and the use of CPT codes, HCPCS codes, ICD-10-CM codes, bundling, and payer policies. It is a broad overview aimed at describing “who makes up these rules” and where to look for definitive, citation-based answers.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
• Describe the entities that develop and maintain the code sets used in medical practice coding
• Explain the differences between coding and reimbursement
• List the key resources required for accurate coding
