New: Interventional radiology coding users' guide
Date:7/14/2009

Update Committee (RUC) processes and the ongoing five-year review. RUC's recommendations to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services significantly influence the relative values assigned to physician services and how doctors are paid. The guide also provides an overview of various Medicare payment systems and reimbursement for IR services performed in the freestanding setting.

With the CD guide, users get interactive bookmarks and hyperlinks, linking concepts and codes with just one click. All new and significantly revised text is presented in red to support quick identification and review of changes from the 2008 edition. The 2009 reference contains completed updated 2009 IR coding charge sheets in Excel format, enabling customization to reflect the services provided by particular practices. Also included are evaluation and management charge sheets in Excel format, template coverage request letters with supporting documentation for IR procedures and an in-patient log in Word format that may be customized. The guide's color-coded illustrations are separate JPG/GIF files, and photographs of several IR procedures are available as separate JPG files for office reference and presentations.

The 2009 Interventional Radiology Coding Users' Guide is available for $249 to nonmembers of SIR; bulk purchase discounts are available. The 2009 Interventional Radiology Coding Users' Guide CD-ROM costs $275 for nonmembers of SIR. For more information, visit the Society of Interventional Radiology's Web site at www.SIRweb.org (click on IR Store) or call (888) 695-9733.
