This is module number two for spinal PCS procedures and guidelines.

In this module we’re going to take a pretty deep dive into these spinal PCS procedures.

Our objectives are to review some of the key terms necessary to capture accurate complex spinal procedure coding.

We’re going to look at the impact of spinal region codes on DRGs. We’re also going to look at some of the coding guidelines for the complete coding of procedures.

Finally, we’re going to talk about both your DRG systems and look at both DRG methodologies.
