Data & Reimbursement Committee Coding Tip: 3 CEU Opportunities for Spine & Shoulder Procedures

By Erin Leighton, RHIT

I want to take a moment and thank all who participated in the survey we put out to members a few months ago. I found it very helpful in identifying topics for monthly coding tips, as well as future CEU opportunities. The topic that received the most feedback was procedural coding for orthopedic surgery of the spine, shoulders, and knees. While I know absolutely nothing about these topics, I did do a bit of digging and found three pre-recorded CEU sessions that are low-cost and available online. These will require you to register for the courses with a KnowledgeConnex e-learning account (free) in order to access them.
