CY 2017 CPT® update

The New Year will once again ring in numerous changes for reporting medical services and procedures. Dozens of new codes reflect innovative technology and new services rendered. The revisions clarify the intent of codes as well as bundle frequently used component codes into new combination codes. Reporting time for moderate sedation and reporting dialysis maintenance will significantly change for services post January 1. This webinar will review these and all other changes that will impact coding and compliance in the New Year.
