Come October 1, 2018, approximately 500 ICD-10-CM codes changes will take effect, among them: 19 for Cardiology. Are you ready? If you don’ know your ICD-10 codes inside and out, your claims won’t tell the full patient story—especially important for capturing co-morbidities and setting Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) reimbursement rates.
In this critical ICD-10 diagnosis code webinar, coding expert Terry Fletcher will lay out each Cardiology update for 2019, detail the steps necessary to ensure that your documentation supports medical necessity, and reveal other actions you can take to improve your billing and reimbursements in the new year. Start here to boost your office’s clinical documentation improvement (CDI) efforts—and revenue.
What's new? The preliminary 2019 ICD-10-CM list revises the code sets for postprocedural cardiogenic shock (T81.1 range) and cerebral infarction (I63 range). Added codes include those addressing elevated lipoprotein(a) (E78.41), “other” hyperlipidemia (E78.49), and plasminogen deficiency (E88.02). Plus: You have a new Pediatrics code for Williams syndrome (Q93.82).
Don't miss this opportunity to get the guidance you need to use both familiar and updated ICD-10 codes properly. Learn the exact coding conventions for a variety of diagnoses that you regularly see in Cardiology offices, improve the effectiveness of your ICD-10 coding practices, and gain proven techniques to avoid claims denials and payment delays.
