Coding Made Painless

Course Overview

This 4-hour course will cover CPT coding for the most common pain management procedures. Whether an orthopaedic surgeon, physiatrist or anesthesiologist does the procedure, the codes are the same.  You’ll learn how to correctly code and document injection and interventional procedures as well as when it is appropriate to bill procedures bilaterally.
