Two of the most common surgeries for the hip and knee are arthroscopy and joint replacement. In arthroscopy procedures are performed into the joint through a scope. Arthroscopic procedures performed by orthopedic surgeons and podiatrists are some of the most common surgeries performed with insurance companies spending a lot of money on these procedures. Because of the frequency in which these procedures are performed, insurance guidelines and policies are ever-changing, making it difficult to keep up with what is currently payable, and what is not considered medical necessary or experimental and investigational.
The expectation of this conference is that the attendee upon the completion of the conference should have an understanding of assigning codes and modifiers for reimbursement of all arthroscopic procedures, in addition to the other insurance guidelines and rules that have to be followed. We will also discuss tips on what is the best practice for documentation to be able to pass an insurance audit. Attendees will walk away with the most current trends in arthroscopic surgery.
