The operative report remains the first line of defense for the coding and reimbursement of a procedure or surgery.  The best defense is a strong offense, so comprehensive operative report documentation can make the difference between an organization receiving timely payment or fighting with insurance companies for reimbursement they may or may not receive due to documentation deficiencies.  Every operative report must include the following components: heading, history/indications for surgery, body of the report, and findings and follow-up required for the patient.  In this webinar, we will take a deep dive into the intricacies of the operative report documentation, important strategies for successfully dissecting the operative report, applicable billing and coding rules, auditing protocols, and review practical examples.
