What is the follow-up period for a specific surgical procedure? What does the acronym "ECCE" stand for? What is the proper sequencing of multiple ICD-9-CM codes? Can I bill separately for medical supplies with this procedure? How do I report an "add-on" service properly? Are the services of an assistant surgeon paid for this procedure?
Every day you have to find the answers to dozens of questions like these before you can complete your coding - frequently consulting several references to find the answers you need. With PMIC's comprehensive reference, the answers to coding, terminology and coverage questions like these are right at your fingertips!
