    12. 2015 G – Codes* I was just wondering if you are aware of Medicare not approving many of the new 2015 CPT codes? They will be continuing with the 2014 codes, but will need to assign G codes. I found the lab codes on the CMS website yesterday, but have not yet seen the G codes for GI and radiology oncology. Thanks, Arlene ANSWER

  • Chat Q & A Webinar- January 2015
  • ICD-10 For ICD-10, what service would you recommend to use to educate doctors regarding their documentation? Shouldn't I know about ICD-9 before learning ICD- 10?
  • Study for CPC Exam I am just starting to study for the CPC exam so what material would you recommend I start with to prepare for the exam? I do want to move quickly.
  • Coding Manuals Can you explain how to use the AAPC CPT vs the one put out by the AMA. The AAPC version doesn't seem to have the same notations and hints.
  • Old Code – Depo Shot There is a question about what which procedure code for the depo shot. In a AAPC meeting it was mentioned to start using the old code instead of the new, the old code is not in the book anymore, will the insurance pay for the shot?
  • CIC Certification Why doesn't anyone recognize the CIC certification? Now I am forced to take the CCS but really wanted to keep all my certifications with AAPC.
  • Thanks For Being With Us!
