Presented by: Jean Acevedo, LHRM, CPC, CHC, CENTC, AAPC Fellow

Starting January 1, a series of critical coding and billing updates are coming to the cardiovascular system. You’ll find more than a dozen new, revised, or deleted codes as part of the 2022 CPT® Manual update. You will also discover key billing changes, including increased autonomy of physician assistants, in the final 2022 Medicare physician fee schedule. CMS is also changing the definition of shared/split visits, and this will have a huge impact on your hospital billing of nonphysician practitioners. And did you know that CMS is planning significant payment cuts to numerous cardio procedures, including revascularization and vascular embolization?

This 60-minute webinar will help you brace for all of these coming cardio updates and set up your practice for success. Expert speaker Jean Acevedo, LHRM, CPC, CHC, CENTC, AAPC Fellow, will prepare you for the full range of 2022 cardio coding and billing updates, present real-life scenarios and operational tips, and answer participant questions during a live Q&A
