SGO is offering a four-part webinar series recorded in 2013 that addresses coding requirement needs pertaining to the major components of gynecologic oncology treatment. Each webinar session was, or will be, recorded to purchase as a packaged series. The series is comprised of the following topics:

Education Forum V – Coding update: ICD-10 preview and interactive CPT coding for surgical services
Coding for chemotherapy
CPT coding for non-gynecological procedures
Coding for common surgical and E/M scenarios

Education Forum V – Coding update: ICD-10 preview and interactive CPT coding for surgical services

Recorded from the 2013 Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer
Led by Mark Shahin, MD, and moderated by Emily Hill, PA, and William Robinson III, MD, the recording from the 2013 Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer discussed an overview of ICD-10, key challenges and opportunities posed by the transition to ICD-10, as well as possible strategies to address issues. CPT coding for surgical services and cases was also presented.

Coding for Chemotherapy

Recorded May 30, 2013
Led by David Holtz, MD and William Robinson, III, MD, this webinar discussed the code sets and coding requirements for reporting office-based chemotherapy services. The appropriate CPT code combinations to use when multiple chemotherapy and supportive therapy services are provided on the same date of service was addressed. The documentation requirements for supporting the chemotherapy administration codes and the drug dosages was also reviewed. Lastly, common clinical scenarios were presented and the appropriate CPT and ICD coding were reviewed.

Upon completion of the webinar, listeners will:

  • Understand how to appropriately report chemotherapy services in a physician office setting
  • Recognize the importance of linking ICD-9 codes to CPT codes for chemotherapy administration
  • Learn how to make the appropriate calculations for the J-codes used to report chemotherapy medications
  • Be able to apply the coding guidelines and code sets to common clinical examples for gyn/oncology cases

CPT Coding for non-gynecological procedures

Recorded Oct. 2, 2013
Led by Michael Manuel, MD and William Robinson, MD, this webinar focused on the topic of CPT codes for reporting non-gynecological procedures including urologic, intestinal, and reconstructive procedures. The appropriate use of these CPT codes when performed alone and in conjunction with gynecological procedures was also reviewed. Additionally, the webinar discussed which appropriate modifiers are used when multiple procedures are performed. Lastly, common clinical cases were presented and the appropriate CPT and ICD coding was examined.

Upon completion of the webinar, listeners will:

  • Understand how to select CPT codes for non-gynecological surgical procedures
  • Understand the role of modifiers when reporting multiple procedures and how to use modifiers when reporting non-gynecological and gynecological procedures
  • Apply the coding guidelines and code sets discussed to common surgical cases

Putting it All Together Coding for Common Surgical and E/M Scenarios

Recorded Dec. 3, 2013
The webinar, Putting It All Together: Coding for Common Surgical and E/M Scenarios is geared towards coding and billing office staff, as well as gynecologic oncologists. Course presenter, Mark Shahin, MD, and Course Moderator, Emily Hill, PA, will conduct the webinar as a case presentation using actual Evaluation and Management (E/M) and surgical cases. The correct CPT and ICD codes for each case will be identified along with the supporting rationale and coding guidelines. Additionally, the role of clinical documentation in determining code selection will be reviewed. Lastly, there will be a discussion of frequent coding inquiries and scenarios submitted to SGO by members and their staff. Question and answer time will be allotted at the end of the webinar.

Upon completion of the webinar, listeners will:

  • Learn how to select CPT and ICD codes for common surgical procedures
  • Understand the basis for selecting E/M codes
  • Recognize the importance and role of clinical documentation in assigning CPT and ICD codes
