I will return to work on Wednesday, my number 949-437-9042.  In the meantime, research staged procedure modifiers; rules governing ICD-9 and coding primary site versus metastisis.  Review your debulking codes in the CPT manual.  Review line placement, in specific, PICC line for chemotherapy.  Also take a look at your ICD-9 V codes in relation to personal history and family history of malignancy.  There are also V codes for post op care and receiving chemotherapy.  

Remember the global period and E&M visits that are not related to the primary surgery.  Review co-surgeon and consultation rules.

I hope this helps.  I hope that I can talk to you too.  Good luck!
