Go in-depth into ICD-10’s coding guidelines. These general and section-specific rules are essential for correct coding and often hold critical information beyond a code’s description. The information, however, is buried in PDFs separate from the ICD-10 code set which means you need to combine the knowledge for efficient coding.

 

Coders need a solid training in the coding guidelines so that they can quickly check code combinations for compliance and avoid denials and delayed cash flow. Be ready to take notes to share with your providers on the ICD-10 guidelines that impact them. Topics covered in this ICD-10 training include:

  • Tips to make sure you capture all required code characters
  • When to report multiple conditions with a single code
  • How to handle threatened conditions, rule outs and borderline diagnoses – some rules have changed
  • Identify what single conditions require reporting multiple codes
  • Criteria that apply to late effects
