How to Code Speech Sound Disorders When Billing Insurance

This course increases the proficiency of speech-language pathologists in private practice, helping them to accurately categorize speech sound disorders based on patient history and current presentation for the selection of the appropriate International Classification of Diseases (ICD) and Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code for insurance reimbursement. Through case studies, the presenter will demonstrate how to synthesize available data to code the client’s presentation appropriately.
