An accurate understanding of the coding and billing process is critical for rehab professionals. 2021 CPT Coding & Billing for Speech Therapy Services covers the correct use of CPT codes used by speech language pathologists and speech language assistants in all outpatient settings including private practice, hospital-based outpatient departments, rehabilitation agencies, schools, comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation facilities, skilled nursing facilities doing Part B and in a patient’s home. The course will review the definition of substantial of time-based CPT codes per the American Medical Association (AMA) in order to bill correctly to the Medicare program and private insurance carriers. Billing scenarios are discussed and reviewed to ensure speech language pathologists can accurately charge patients correctly for their services. Lastly, the webinar will review National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) Procedure-to-Procedure (PTP) edits and the use of Modifier 59 as they pertain to outpatient speech therapy services.
