CPT Updates for 2020

Live Webinar

  • 60 minutes

The International Classification of Diseases, Version 10- Clinical Modifications, or ICD-10-CM, is maintained by the World Health Organization (WHO). This manual allows healthcare providers to submit the diagnoses for services and procedures performed to identify the medical necessity for them. Each year the ICD-10-CM manual is updated with additions, revisions, and deletions. These changes become effective on October 1st of year with no grace period, but affect all services with dates of service October 1st and forward. If healthcare providers do not submit validly ICD-10-CM codes, there claims will be denied for reimbursement, and corrections will need to be made before the claim can be considered for payment. This causes delays which has can cause revenue problems for the healthcare provider.

Join this session by expert speaker Lynn Anderanin where she will walk you through the overall newly added, revised and deleted CPT codes and explains what they’ll need to know in order to accurately report codes and reduce the chance of denials.
