Description

There have been significant developments in interventions to treat congenital heart disease in the past three decades. Proper CPT codes for these procedures have been lagging, resulting in under-valuations or missing codes. This webinar serves to educate our community on these issues. 

 


 

Learning Objectives

At the end of this activity, participants will be able to: 

  • Discuss status of CPT coding for CHD interventions.
  • Describe how to advocate for more accurate CPT coding for CHD interventions.
  • Explain the process needed to develop new CPT codes for existing and future CHD interventions.
