Heather Bryans

Often, reporting pressure ulcer care can be confusing and frustrating. From differentiating between non-excisional to excisional debridement, to accurately reporting active wound management and surgical interventions.  Reporting pressure ulcer treatment can really make you feel like you are “under pressure. In this session we want to lift that pressure and show you how pressure-free coding for these services can be.

Topics include:

  • Applicable Regulatory Guidance including CMS considerations for Hospital Acquired Conditions;
  • Documentation Best Practices to provide the most specific details and help prove medical necessity;
  • Reporting surgical repairs;
  • Deciphering the documentation for accurate code assignment

and more.

Attend this session to learn to:

  • Apply learned information to make logical decisions for reporting treatment of Pressure Ulcers in CPT
  • Apply rules for selecting the diagnosis and achieve medical necessity for reported services.
  • Describe key CMS rules and regulations specific to treatment of pressure ulcers and apply this knowledge in your own providers claims.
