The transcatheter valvular procedure code set in CPT has significantly expanded since the transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) codes were created in 2013. To keep up with the development of these novel treatment options in the subspecialty of interventional cardiology, several additions have been made to CPT to capture new procedures across all four cardiac valves in several areas of the code book. Additionally, many patients are enrolled in clinical trials as this area of medicine rapidly expands, creating the need for a nuanced understanding of coding, billing, and claim requirements beyond just the assignment of the correct CPT code.

Join Panacea Senior Healthcare Consultant Jayna Tuominen for this 60-minute webinar, where she will review the current state code set for transcatheter valvular heart interventions across all four cardiac valves and discuss how to successfully navigate clinical trial coding, billing, and claim submission for these procedures. This presentation will equip physicians, charge entry personnel, coding professionals, practice administrators, and revenue cycle staff with the information needed to perform accurate and compliant coding and claim submission.

A live Q&A at the end of the webinar will provide the opportunity to ask questions.

Learning Objectives:

• Identify all necessary codes currently available to capture transcatheter valvular procedures across all four cardiac valves.
• Review critical documentation points to include in operative notes for accurate reimbursement.
• Understand what current medical device products correspond with each available code.
• Review clinical trial coding, billing, and claim requirements as they apply to the transcatheter valvular procedure code set.
