How to Insure Your Practice against an Avalanche of Gastroenterology Coding Challenges?
Gastroenterology codes, like other specialty-specific codes, have regularly been subject annual revisions. During the course of such revisions, many new CPT codes have been added corresponding to modifications in gastroenterology procedures while a few irrelevant codes have been taken off. As a result, physicians’ billing offices or coding staff have had to adapt themselves subtly to these inevitable changes in order to effect accurate gastroenterology coding. Even as physicians’ coding have shown admirably flexibility to imbibe these coding revisions, there is an avalanche of coding revisions waiting to unleash itself on gastroenterology practitioners – ICD-10 in itself would bring forth extensive increase in gastroenterology codes as well their specificity.
