Product Description

Correct Diagnosis Coding with Kim Garner-Huey

Diabetes is the most incorrectly coded diagnosis – most of the patients are coded as if they have absolutely no complications; therefore, the claims data is not able to accurately capture the intensity of the services provided.  Even many physicians are also not aware of the specific benefits that are offered by Medicare and other payers in order to treat diabetes. Think again about this as you could be losing out on major reimbursement right now — without even knowing it.

Learn to quickly and correctly identify the mistakes in coding and code them to the penny. Let the documentation tell the story of the complex procedure and complicated patient in a compliant way that satisfies all the differing rules an auditor would look for. More and new payer audits are being done every day, and medical decision making is frequently under-documented.

Expert Kim Garner-Huey will give you the roadmap you need to ensure for accurate diagnosis of diabetes. She will also include a brief preview of ICD-10-CM coding for diabetes, along with worksheet for correct diagnosis coding and specifics on diabetes complications.
