1:00 pm - 5:00 pm - Coding & Reimbursement: Challenging and economic issues that are facing the global spine community at large

Session One
Presented by Barbara Cataletto

Coding and Documentation Methodologies and Recommendations:


The presentation will focus on the standard requirements for coding and documentation for the spine practice. Both surgeon and staff alike will gain an in-depth appreciation for the coding idiosyncrasies and related protocols required to properly document their surgical case for optimum reimbursement.

Management of Post-Operative Reimbursement Denials:


This course focuses on the aggressive appeals process for the spine practice.

The presentation will take the audience through a series of events/calamities that clearly show the withholding of appropriate reimbursement even though all supportive coding documentation had been presented.

We will be discussing the day-to-day management of the unacceptable practice of insurance carriers denials for pre-approved services.

Operating Room Costs: Surgeons Obligation to be Fiscally Responsible:


A retrospective look at operating room waste that could be avoided.

Session Two
Presented / Moderated by Charles Schneider

Value Based Purchasing and Pay for Performance
Insurer Payment Trends Relating to Spinal Surgery
