AAOS Report - March, 2005

All new coding guide now available

To help you stay current with ever-changing coding requisites, the AAOS has created a new coding resource: the CPT/RVU Coding Guide for Orthopaedic Surgery. This handy guide will help you convert CPT codes to Medicare RVU facility and nonfacility equivalents. It also answers your coding questions and contains codes and descriptors for more than 1,500 musculoskeletal, radiology and integumentary procedures.

The book includes an updated section on evaluation and management coding, complete with examples of how to apply these codes to your practice. This guide combines the best from two popular coding books: the AAOS Guide to CPT Coding in Orthopaedic Surgery and the CPT Minibook for Orthopaedic Surgery, formerly published by the American Medical Association. The CPT/RVU Coding Guide is available for $75 to AAOS members and residents.

The 2005 versions of Complete Global Service Data, CPT/ICD-9 Cross-Reference and Orthopaedic Code X on CD-ROM are also available to help you code and cross-reference correctly and increase reimbursements to your practice. These resources are thoroughly reviewed, updated and enhanced each year by the Coding, Coverage and Reimbursement Committee. More detailed product information is available in the Academy’s print and online Educational Resources Catalog.

To order these or any other AAOS products, go online to www.aaos.org/products or call (800) 626-6726.
