How’s your colonoscopy coding “looking?” Are you all settled in with the changes recently made to hernia repair coding? In this webinar we review common colonoscopy scenarios such as screenings and diagnostic procedures, along with what to do if the scope doesn’t reach the anatomical location needed to report a colonoscopy code. We also take some time to go over hernia repairs cases to strengthen your confidence in how to report them.
