Description: The 2021 CMS Medicare Physician Fee Schedule reduction in RVUs for bothtotal knee arthroplasty (TKA), and total hip arthroplasty (THA), reduced there imbursement for these procedures and did not account for the pre-service physician work involved. The AAOS and AAHKS were heavily engaged in this issue, participating in discussions with AMA and CMS who both recognized that pre-service optimization work occurs with THA (27130) and TKA (27447).This webinar will address the correct coding for work performed prior to surgery with principal care management (PCM) codes.

Learning Objectives:

- Equip with how to appropriately report for the work performed prior to surgery

- How to assess the time frame reportable for pre-operative visits before surgery

- Understand CMS’s Global Surgical Package and how it affects reporting of pre-surgical services
