For Unit 5, you will use your two (2) chosen pathologies (disease, illness, or disorder) that you selected for the Unit 3 PowerPoint assignment.
Find an outpatient (CPT) procedure a patient may have due to their disease, illness, or disorder
For example: illness = appendicitis and the physician has determined a laparoscopic appendectomy is the treatment plan
Submit a Word document with the following information:
Step 1: Provide the appropriate CPT code for your first procedure
For example, CPT code is 44970
Step 2: Provide the steps you used to locate the code
Use the following as an example:
In the Index locate
main term = appendectomy
subterm = laparoscopic
The index provides CPT 44970
Review 44970 in the CPT section to review any special notes provide, if any.
Step 3: Pick one (1) Official CPT Coding Guideline from the code section and explain the guideline (using your own words)
The Instructional notes for 44970 explain that a surgical laparoscopy includes diagnostic laparoscopy, which means a diagnostic laparoscopy cannot be coded separately. If a physician performs only a diagnostic laparoscopy (peritoneoscopy) (separate procedure), use CPT 49320.
Step 4: Provide the appropriate CPT code for your second pathology and follow Steps 1-3
Also, include the following in proper APA format
