ZHealth Consulting, like our Publishing counterpart, specializes in vascular and endovascular surgery coding and reimbursement. This specialty area includes surgical procedures performed in the peripheral and central vascular system that may involve transcatheter approaches and open approaches. It is difficult to maintain coding proficiency due to annual CPT coding updates/bundling edits and the complex procedures, which may involve multiple vessels and surgeons with assistant surgeons. Missing one code can cost a facility thousands of dollars (and a physician hundreds).
Our physicians have an in-depth understanding of the scope of procedures performed and stay abreast of the current vascular and endovascular coding rules. This knowledge is used to perform coding audits, outsourced coding, and on-site education for vascular and endovascular surgery.
Vascular and endovascular surgery procedures are some of the highest reimbursed – and most audited – outpatient services. One incorrect code can result in significant lost revenue and/or compliance risk. Do not wait for a payer audit to discover you are being paid incorrectly – contact ZHealth for more information.
