  • 2020 AANS Guide to Coding: Mastering the Global Service Package for Neurological Surgery Services

    AANS Member: $135 | Non-member: $200

    Editors: Joseph S. Cheng, MD, MS, FAANS; John Kevin Ratliff, MD, FAANS; Luis Manuel Tumialan, MD, FAANS 

    Pages: 169

    Publication Date: Feb. 1, 2020

    Format: Spiral Bound

    Simplify your coding with this collection of procedure-related information specific to neurosurgery. The 2020 American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Guide to Coding has related procedures grouped into sections for easy reference, including:

    • Cranial
    • Pain/Interventional/Functional
    • CSF shunting
    • Peripheral Nerve
    • Spine
    • Extracranial Cerebrovascular
    • Catheter/Endovascular/Percutaneous

    All procedures are listed by a coding number (searchable through a comprehensive index) and an associated descriptor. Intraoperative and postoperative services that have been included or excluded from the global service package are presented in a streamlined, easy-to-read manner.

    Updated with 2020 coding changes and current AANS coding recommendations, the AANS Guide to Coding includes features requested by neurosurgical coders. This Guide is ideal for neurosurgeons, their billing and coding personnel, and office managers.

    With the implementation of ICD-10-CM, the number of possible diagnostic codes approaches 68,000. The AANS ICD-10 Express Code eliminates the daily need of a weighty, unwieldy reference by including only the most common diagnoses faced by the practicing neurosurgeon.
