AAOS offers new coding service hot line
Information avalable on global fees and Medicare
The AAOS is offering a new "hotline" service for members who need help with CPT and ICD coding. Members can also get information on global fee periods, Medicare Correct Coding Initiative recommendations and 2002 Medicare relative values.
The hotline is available Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. CST.
Members can choose from either a special unlimited service plan ($50 billed every 2 months) or a fee-for-service plan ($20 per consultation unit.)
