Product Description

Gear up For The Conversion Of Common Injuries From ICD-9 To ICD-10

Injuries make up Chapter 19 of the ICD-10-CM, but more information is needed for coding staff to assign the appropriate code due to the expansion of codes for injuries. Using injury codes will focus on additional information to be needed by insurance carriers, so we only want to use these codes when appropriate.

This conference by Lynn Anderanin, CPC, CPC-I, COSC, will look at Chapter 19 in the ICD-10-CM and break down how to code injuries appropriately. The session will focus on reviewing laterality, coding by site, and how to code late effects, which are all changed from the way we code in ICD-9-CM.

Session highlights:

  • Detailed review of Chapter 19 in ICD-10-CM
  • The utilization of the 7th character extension for injuries
  • Additional information needed for the CMS claim form for injuries
  • Other ICD-10-CM External cause codes that may need to be assigned
  • Conversion of common injuries from ICD-9 to ICD-10

Like the ICD-9, Injuries have their own Chapter in ICD-10, but due to the expansion of specificity in this chapter, some may consider Chapter 19 to be one of the most complicated chapters in ICD-10. In ICD-9, injuries were coded by the kind of injury, and then by the site of the injury. In ICD-10, the site of injury is chosen first, and then the type of injury.  Also, the majority of codes in Chapter 19 require a 7th character to specify if the patient is being seen for their first time, subsequent, or late effect of the injury. Laterality is also prevalent in Chapter 19. Traumatice fractures have several layers of specificity, and discussion on the External Cause codes which are the E codes in ICD-9, but span over codes with multiple letter suffixes in ICD-10 will also be included.

The speaker will answer your questions in a Q&A segment after the session to help you with the doubts and queries you may have.

Who should attend? This session is appropriate for orthopaedic surgeons, non physician providers, coders, collections staff, surgery schedulers, practice managers/administrators, Internal medicine, Family practice, ED providers and radiology.
