2013 Coding Update from the House of Cardiology
Wednesday, November 28, 2012 | 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
SCAI, ACC, and HRS Are Coming Together to Prepare You for the Sweeping Changes in Cardiology Coding Coming in 2013
Mark your office calendars now for a web-based educational program designed to prepare you and your billing staff for major changes coming to cardiology coding in 2013. In an effort to protect the valuations for your bread-and-butter procedures, the House of Cardiology had to initiate a complete restructuring of the codes and coding conventions for percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) and ablation procedures.
At this important webinar, you will learn directly from those who presented the codes and sat at the table during the CPT and RUC processes. Learn from nationally recognized experts Robert Piana, MD, FACC, Amit J. Shanker, MD, FHRS, Art Lee, MD, FSCAI, and Cliff Kavinsky, MD, PhD, FSCAI, how to code for these procedures using the new coding paradigms.
And don't miss this opportunity to hear from James Blankenship, MD, MACC, FSCAI, who serves as Cardiology's RUC Panel representative and will present our spotlight topic: "The RUC Process, the RUC Survey and the Benefits of Coalition Building." Dr. Blankenship will describe and take your questions about the impact of the RUC on you and your practice, why your participation in the process is essential, and how SCAI, ACC, and HRS band together and engage other in our efforts to protect the values for the services and procedures you provide to your patients.
