Understanding the National Correct Coding Initiative
During this complimentary, hour-long educational session, VitalWare's Director of Data Integrity, Jennifer Bishop, will take an in-depth look at the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI). The differences between the Procedure-to-Procedure (PTP) edits and the Medically Unlikely Edits (MUE), the variations between the facility and professional versions of the edits and a discussion of the NCCI eligible modifiers will be covered during this webinar. In addition, we will interpret the files and review the appropriate assignment of NCCI-associated modifiers using real coding scenarios.
Attendees will leave this educational session with:
- Ability to explain the purpose and rationale behind the National Correct Coding Initiative
- Understanding of the distinct components of the NCCI and how these distinct components are used to edit claims
- Knowledge of the differences between facility and professional edits
- Ability to identify the NCCI eligible modifiers and how to apply them correctly using practice scenarios
