A Seminar Story

A successful urologist, making a decent salary and frustrated with the endless rules and regulations, found himself worrying that payers were taking advantage of him.

Despite learning coding from colleagues, coders, and billers, reading articles, and attending occasional webinars, he felt there may be some rules and regs he didn't know or understand.

Feeling determined to improve, the urologist made the decision to attend our Urology Advanced Coding and Reimbursement Seminar in Las Vegas. It was only one day out of the clinic and a night or two in Vegas would be fun, he thought.

During the discussion on E&M Modifiers, the urologist learned more about Modifier -25, a concept he quickly realized was essential to urology coding. In his practice, they were not using Modifier -25 correctly, and he was determined to capture and bill all instances of it in the new year.

A year later, the urologist happily raised his hand during the Modifier -25 discussion and shared his story. Before attending the previous year's Seminar, he was confident that his partners, coders, and billers were doing a good job. However, he learned that he was missing out on significant revenue by not using Modifier -25 appropriately.

Thanks to the knowledge gained at the Seminar, he made an extra $100,000 that year by properly using Modifier -25. The urologist's success story is a testament to the importance of staying informed and continuously learning to thrive in the ever-changing medical industry.
