Anyone can read a CPT manual and pick a code, but not everyone can pick the correct code. Unless you know how to optimally use your Coding Manual, you can count on choosing the wrong code, getting your claims denied, and watching your reimbursement go down.
This is a real problem in smaller practices where the office manager, physician or front desk manager is responsible for choosing the most appropriate code. This can be disastrous, because they’ve never actually been trained on how to really utilize the CPT coding manual accurately and to their benefit.
You can access this quick, down and dirty, online training session on that will get your entire team up to speed. This plain-English, step-by-step session is specifically for healthcare professionals (both clinical and administrative) that are involved in the coding process (even peripherally), but haven’t been formally trained in coding (or are just starting out).
Here are just a few of the practical, usable tactics you and your team will receive by completing this online training:
- Master CPT manual symbols – without them you’re guessing at the right code
