No matter the care setting, coders are frequently challenged by reporting spinal procedures accurately. The complexity of the procedures, frequent gaps in provider documentation, and required anatomical knowledge and terminology can make reporting the most specific procedures very difficult.

Train both your inpatient and outpatient coders at once by joining expert speaker Adrienne Commeree, CPC, CPMA, CCS, CEMC, CPIP, for this 90-minute webinar as she discusses CPT® and ICD-10-PCS reporting for spinal procedures. She will review spinal anatomy as well as spinal procedures including laminectomies, foraminotomies, discectomies, pain management, fusions, and more! She will also present pertinent coding background and documentation guidelines for both CPT and ICD-10-PCS, as well as explain best practices for reporting spinal procedures in both code sets.

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

  • Describe the anatomy of the spine relevant to spinal procedures
  • Determine and assign appropriate CPT and ICD-10-PCS codes for spinal procedures, including spinal fusions
  • Differentiate between laminectomies and laminotomies and similar procedures, as well as decompressions
  • Recognize various devices used for interbody fusions
  • Apply the latest coding guidance to accurately report spinal surgeries for both inpatient and outpatient settings
