New Year, New Codes: 2015 CPT® and HCPCS Level II Coding Updates; VitalWare Hosts Free Webinar Reviewing Significant Coding Changes

YAKIMA, WA--(Marketwired - Nov 24, 2014) -  VitalWare will host complimentary, 90 minute webinars introducing and reviewing the significant changes in the 2015 CPT® and HCPCS code set updates.

Led by VitalWare's own Jill Wolf, RHIT, CCS, and AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer, the webinar highlights newly added, revised and deleted codes in the following areas and more:

  • Percutaneous Vertebroplasty
  • ECMO/ECLS Codes for Professional Inpatient Services
  • Guideline updates, e.g., many new "do not report with" coding instructions in digestive system code range
  • Colonoscopy Decision Tree
  • Radiation Management and Treatment code relationships
  • Revised guidelines and new codes for definitive drug testing
  • Over 200 new and 150 deleted HCPCS Level II codes

Today's Medicare claims turn into tomorrow's Medicare database for which future APC rates are established. Coding errors prevent CMS from correctly paying for hospital outpatient services and provide incentives to auditors; therefore, understanding the new CPT and HCPCS code sets is vital.
