Attend our complimentary webinar to gain a deeper understanding of how the ICD-10-CM 2017 changes will impact your organization. Rachel M. Kaser, BS, CPC, MHSA, AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer and Auditor for SuperCoder.com, will teach you the top ten tips to become more comfortable and efficient with your ICD-10 coding and compliance!

 

At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Obtain insights on the numerous changes to codes H00 – H59. You’ll have diabetic retinopathy codes that further add to expansion, macular edema involvement, and laterality.
  • Understand the additions and revisions you’ll see related to seromas and post-op seromas, which you’ll find in Chapter 3 — Diseases of the Blood, codes D50 – D89. A seroma is a collection of fluid that can form after a surgery or trauma. A seroma contains clear, serous fluid in comparison to a hematoma, which contains blood. There is a clinical difference between a seroma and a hematoma, and now you’ll have the ability to report that difference.
  • Grasp the Excludes1/Excludes2 changes. The new rule states that if the two conditions are not related to one another, it may be permissible to report both codes despite the presence of an Excludes1 note.
  • Learn the updates to Chapter 19 — Injuries and Poisonings, codes S00 – T88. These changes will allow you to add concrete guidance to the 7th character applications, and you’ll get increased site specificity for fracture codes.
  • Know that hypertension will be broken down into hypertensive urgency, hypertensive emergency, or hypertensive crisis. Specific descriptions and codes within the I16 category will allow you to separately report urgency, emergency, or crisis.
  • Discover numerous additions, revisions, and deletions to Chapter 8 — Ear and Mastoid Process, codes H60 – H95.
  • See the changes to post-procedural hemorrhage and hematoma. There have been changes across nearly all the chapters for post-procedural hemorrhage and hematoma of various organs and structures.
  • Discover the acceptable use of unspecified codes. Don’t use an unspecified code when a more specific one is available.
  • Know how to train your staff on their current understanding of ICD-10 codes, fill in the gaps by providing education and training, and familiarize yourself with payer policies.
  • Gain clarification on the coding guideline changes for FY 2017.
  • Use expert ICD-10 tools to correctly select codes necessary for compliance, while avoiding denials.
  • Avoid setbacks to reimbursement.
