AAPC allows CEU credits for ACOG live broadcasts only. AAPC does not provide CEUs for ACOG On-Demand broadcasts.

Presentation Description
Laparoscopic procedures are one of the most effective surgical resources in the gynecologist’s tool kit and in-office hysteroscopic procedures are becoming increasingly popular for both physicians and patients. Therefore, it’s critical that physicians and their billing staff understand the key principles of billing for these services.

  • List all of the major laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures performed by Ob/gyns, as well as the similarities and differences between the various procedures.
  • Define best practices in multiple procedure billing, including key principles related to bundling and unbundling these surgical services.
  • Respond effectively to payer denials for laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures .
  • Outline the method in which services are billed when a laparoscopic procedure is converted to an open surgical procedure.
