Unlock These Anesthesia ICD-10 Pain Points

Although your office will not be able to learn ICD-10 coding in an hour, this sixty minute session with Kelly Dennis, MBA, ACS-AN, CANPC, CHCA, CPC, CPC-I, will discuss the timelines and areas of ICD-10 specifically related to anesthesia.  

For instance, when your physician provides anesthesia during surgery to repair an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), your coding will remain virtually the same after ICD-10 implementation. That’s good news.

The ICD-10 equivalents aren’t so one-to-one for pacemaker complications. If your provider is involved with a case because of a pacemaker complication, you’ll have to shift through eight different diagnosis codes – and rely on both the anesthesia and surgical records – to find the best match under ICD-10. The new code set adds specificity based on the type of complication and the encounter type (initial, subsequent, sequela). What that means for you: You probably will need to get this information from the cardiology record since the anesthesiologist might not have details about previous encounters. The speaker will also provide information regarding ICD-10 training for your office.

This session will help you:

  • Nail down anesthesia ICD-10 pain points
  • Check out these most commonly reported anesthesia-specific ICD-10 codes.
  • Here’s what you should be planning for ICD-10 as far as training and implementation.
  • Focus on ICD-10 training for your coding staff — here are the steps you need to take.
  • Make the most of ICD-10 testing opportunities.

Get answers to your questions in a Q&A segment by the speaker after the session.

Who should attend: Anesthesia coding staff, billing staff, anesthesiologists, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, Anesthesia Assistants, administrators, office managers and supervisors.
