Arteriovenous Circuit and Interventions Coding in CPT


In this course, we review CPT coding for interventions performed on arteriovenous fistulas and grafts. We will discuss the recent updates to these codes and provide definitions for both peripheral and central dialysis circuits. Additionally, we will explain the details of the CPT coding hierarchy.

Included Lessons:

  • What is an Arteriovenous Circuit?
  • Arteriovenous Circuit in Intervention CPT Coding
  • Fistulograms or AV Graft Imaging
  • Procedural Videos
  • Coding Examples
  • CPT Assistants Pertaining to AV Fistula/Graft Procedures
  • NCCI Reference

Is previous experience in medical coding required for this course?
Yes, since the course delves into specific CPT codes and interventions related to arteriovenous circuits, a foundational knowledge of general CPT coding is recommended to understand and benefit from the course material effectively.
Will I learn real-life coding examples related to arteriovenous circuit interventions during the course?

Absolutely! The course offers practical coding examples and procedural videos to ensure you can effectively apply your theoretical knowledge in real-world coding scenarios, specifically focusing on arteriovenous circuit interventions.

Can I implement the learned coding skills in different medical specialties?

Yes! The skills learned in arteriovenous circuit coding are particularly relevant to vascular surgery, nephrology, and interventional radiology coding, allowing you to apply this specialized knowledge across multiple medical specialties involving vascular access and interventions.

How does understanding the arteriovenous circuit aid in accurate CPT coding?

A deep understanding of the arteriovenous circuit, its interventions, and related anatomy is crucial for accurate CPT coding of relevant procedures. The course guides you through the anatomy, common interventions, and associated CPT codes to ensure precision in coding and billing.

About our Medical Coding Courses

HIAlearn courses are developed to educate the coder in specific coding topics that have proven to be problematic. They are designed to focus on one area in detail, providing the coder with a thorough clinical knowledge of the diagnosis or procedure utilizing videos, photos, and valid websites to aid the coder in fully understanding the topic. Official coding advice and scenarios are utilized to integrate the clinical knowledge provided. Upon completion, the coder will have a thorough knowledge of clinical concepts and coding guidelines of the particular topic. Participants have the option to submit their completion certificates to AHIMA, with a selection also available for AAPC CEU(s).   Learn more about us »
