AAOS Now – May 2019

If you are looking for an electronic tool that makes code selection easier and gives your practice powerful data for reducing denials, strengthening appeals, and validating plan payments, the Academy’s Code-X software tool is a good choice.
Code-X is a desktop and mobile software tool that delivers a range of essential coding datasets and guidelines, all in one unified interface, including Current Procedural Terminology (CPT); International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification, (ICD-10-CM); ICD-10, Procedure Coding System; National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) edits; AAOS Global Service Data guidelines; modifiers; Medicare relative value units (RVUs); and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System codes. Instead of searching Google for codes and rules, opening and closing multiple coding reference guides, or searching for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ RVUs, practices can have all of those datasets and guidelines in one place, distilled onto one screen and navigable by a simple set of tabs. Code-X also includes diagnosis code search tutorials, an evaluation and management (E/M) analyzer, an RVU calculator, and payer management features.
