Watch the Webinar - A Closer Look: How to Audit Surgical Notes

When we code and audit surgery notes, one of the biggest head-scratchers many from our community ask us questions about is the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI).

Back in March, we presented the webinar, How to Accurately Dissect an Operative Note, where we discussed topics including modifiers, residents and co-surgeons, and global components, amongst others. But we barely scratched the surface of NCCI edits. As we said back then, we like to define “initiative” as the ability to assess and initiate. Not just slap a modifier on it and go on your way.

With that in mind, we realized there’s a lot more ground to cover on the topic of operative notes and the importance of following NCCI. So, we thought we’d follow up on that wildly successful webinar, with a new one titled, “A Closer Look: How to Audit Surgical Notes,” where Lori Cox, Regional Director of AAPC Audit Services, shows you:

  • How to Use Modifier 59
  • What the NCCI Edits Mean and How They are Used
  • How to Explain CCI Edits to Providersn
