Coding for peripheral vascular procedures requires coders to not only be aware of the complex anatomy involved, but also accurately interpret provider documentation to choose the most appropriate procedure code. This requires the ability to define terminology used in the CPT Manual and its guidelines, in addition to knowing what is included in each code.

Don’t be frustrated by the difficulty of coding for these procedures—ensure your coders are all on the same page by attending this three-hour virtual workshop from expert speaker Stacie L. Buck, RHIA, CCS-P, RCC, CIRCC. She will guide participants through the components of successful coding and review case studies that highlight frequently challenging clinical scenarios, focusing on catheter-based diagnostic imaging of the arterial system.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Correctly assign catheterization and radiological supervision and interpretation codes for diagnostic angiography of the arterial system
  • Interpret documentation provided in interventional radiology reports, including definitions of key terms affecting code assignment
  • Describe non-selective vs. selective catheterization and explain how to choose correct catheterization codes for multiple vascular families
  • Determine the requirements for assigning specific radiological supervision and interpretation codes
  • Explain differing rules for different body areas, such as head/neck angiography vs. extremity and visceral studies
