Coding for Implants and Bone Grafts
The Coding for Implants and Bone Grafts course is designed to guide OMSs and their staff in the proper implementation of coding practices for reporting bone grafts and implants. Participants will learn to apply these guidelines to real-life coding scenarios. This course also will review processes for verifying coverage with payers, discuss all stages of computer-aided digital workflow, provide coding tips using CDT and CPT code sets, and apply appropriate coding guidelines for procedures relating to bone grafting and implants. Participants will need current CPT and CDT coding books to complete the course and the clinical scenarios.
- Identify steps to determine patient benefits and recognize coverage parameters.
- Define bone graft and implant procedure codes, nomenclature and descriptors.
- Compare other separately reportable codes to be used in conjunction with bone graft and implant procedures.
- Discuss coding options for pre-procedural diagnostic services.
- Analyze real-life OMS coding scenarios while applying the appropriate codes for CDT and CPT.
Completion of this course requires current CPT and CDT coding books. You will need your CPT and CDT coding books to complete the clinical scenarios at the end of the course.
