Pre-Treatment Imaging Services – What Is it and When Is it Billable?
Presented by: Adam Brown, CMD, BSRT(T), and Trena Taylor, B.A., R.T.(R)(T)
Tuesday, October 26, 2021 | 8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m.
This course will define pre-treatment imaging services and provide an overview of what those services are and how they are billed. The information shared will increase participants’ awareness of rules and regulations in the realm of orders, medical necessity and compliance. In addition, the speakers will provide an overview of the differences in each modality, the rules defining a freestanding vs. hospital outpatient facility, and therapists’ responsibilities and expectations regarding imaging.
Adaptive Planning – How to Apply Current Codes to New Technology
Presented by: Adam Brown, CMD, BSRT(T), and Teri Bedard, BA, R.T.(R)(T), CPC
Tuesday, October 26th, 2021 | 9:15 a.m.-10:15 a.m.
Implementing a new treatment modality or purchasing new equipment can be exciting, but coding for the new procedure can be challenging. In radiation oncology, it is not uncommon for technology to bypass the available CPT codes, which leaves users questioning which codes to use and what will be reimbursed. This course will address the history and requirements of the current dosimetry planning CPT codes, including expected frequency and quantities and required quality assurance and documentation. Examples of emerging adaptive planning techniques will be discussed, including recommendations for applying the most appropriate codes, key documentation requirements, and potential payer issues.
