We were all ready to take a break from diagnosis coding after we implemented ICD-10 a few years ago. The rules are in place, and it’s simple, right? Not really. A lack of attention to detail with this important process can cost you time and money. In this important tutorial, Kathy Mills Chang will go over updates to the process and other important diagnosis primers to ensure that you are up-to-date with the most important information.
- Why each and every digit of the DX tells the payer something important
- Nuances of specialized DX coding rules for carriers such as Medicare
- The importance of DX pointing, and which CPT codes are an absolute MUST to point to DX
And lots more! Leave with a better, stronger, clearer understanding of the role diagnosis plays in your coding, documentation and billing.
