It’s official. There will be a delay to the original Oct. 1, 2013 ICD-10 implementation date. But that doesn’t mean your practice should stop preparing. ICD-10 is still coming, and the deadline extension means you can ensure your urology practice is ready when the time does come that payers require ICD-10 diagnoses.
So what is ICD-10 exactly and why do you need to learn about it? Find out in this one-hour session with urology coding expert, Leesa A. Israel. Leesa will explain what ICD-10 is, what the deadline extension means, and what your practice needs to be doing right now to prepare. Register now for this information packed event and you’ll learn how urology-specific ICD-9 codes for diagnoses such as BPH, dysuria, and stress incontinence, will change in ICD-10. Don’t waste time on general sessions that cover hundreds of codes you’ll never use in urology. This conference will home in on the urology-related diagnosis codes you use every day.
With the increased specificity required to choose the proper codes under ICD-10, you should start making documentation changes now. As a bonus, in this session, Leesa will teach you the updates you’ll need to make to your superbill and the documentation tips and tricks your urologist should implement now so you have all the details you need when ICD-10 rolls out.
