The SVS has announced an expansion of its coding-related information and help in response to increasing member demand. The new resources will assist vascular surgeons in navigating medical coding and billing complexities, in line with the Society’s ongoing commitment to provide valuable tools and knowledge in vascular surgery.
On the SVS website, members can review a list of frequently asked questions and answers explicitly tailored to vascular surgery coding. The FAQs will evolve over the next year, with monthly updates.
The SVS and long-term partner Karen Zupko and Associates Inc. (KZA), a consulting and education firm, will launch a series of quarterly on-demand educational courses that will examine the intricacies of coding for vascular surgery.
The SVS will release the first of these courses later this month. The new courses are an addition to the annual SVS in-person Coding and Reimbursement Workshop held each fall.
The SVS Coding Committee can assist members who encounter specific coding inquiries or issues that require individualized support. Members can review the resources and submit questions at vascular.org/CodingInquiries.
The course, he said, was designed by vascular surgeons for vascular surgeons.
