Why am I not getting reimbursed for UD’s? This is a frequent question. Correctly linking the interpretation of urodynamic studies to the correct diagnoses, coding and documentation can be a challenge and can directly impact reimbursement. Correct coding and accurate and complete documentation is important for both reimbursement and subsequent treatment. Frequently used CPT and ICD-9 codes along with the current ICS terminology and key documentation needed are discussed in the presentation. New updates are also presented. UDS graphs, coding and sample documentation are utilized to make this an interactive session.
