Coding and billing rules for hip, knee, and shoulder arthroscopies and total joint replacements are continually evolving, requiring hospitals to stay up to date to report accurate claims. Adding to the potential confusion, in the 2018 OPPS final rule, CMS removed total knee arthroplasty (TKA) procedures from the Medicare inpatient-only (IPO) list, which requires billers to carefully review claim submissions and pre-certification requirements to avoid payment denials.

During this 90-minute webinar, Lynn Anderanin, CPC, CPC-I, CPMA, CPPM, COSC, will review CPT® coding and Medicare billing rules for hip, knee, and shoulder arthroscopies and total joint replacements. She will also discuss medical necessity requirements and ICD-10-CM codes required for reimbursement of procedures billed under Medicare. Anderanin will also review the implications for outpatient facilities now that TKA has been removed from the IPO list and answer questions from audience members during a live Q&A session to follow the presentation.

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

  • Describe hip, knee, and shoulder anatomy and surgical interventions commonly performed to restore movement to these areas
  • Decipher documentation elements required by Medicare for accurate reporting and billing of these procedures
  • Apply the most specific 2019 CPT codes for hip, knee, and shoulder arthroscopies and joint replacements
  • Review guidance regarding TKAs performed in the outpatient setting
