Topic: CPT Surgical Categories: Body System-Specific Guidelines
Example: Integumentary System:
There are specific CPT guidelines for coding and reporting depth and surface area for reporting debridement of wounds.
For this Team Discussion, you will work in teams of 8-10 students assigned by your professor.
Each team will have its own Team Collaboration Space (Discussion 1) and will be assigned one of the CPT Surgical Section body system subsections and its guidelines for coding and reporting.
TEAM 3: CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM;
you will decide what guideline from your assigned Surgical Section each member will discuss in their initial post of at least 150 words by Saturday night. Make sure your initial post fully discusses and applies the surgical section guideline(s), along with its interpretation. You must include an example procedure description and code clearly demonstrating the application of the guideline(s) that you have chosen.
