Diabetes is the most incorrectly coded diagnosis – most patients are coded as if they have no complications; therefore, the claims data does not accurately capture the intensity of the services provided. Many physicians are also not aware of the specific benefits offered by Medicare and other payers to treat diabetes.
Attend this 1-hour seminar presented by coding specialist Kim Garner-Huey, CPC, CCS-P, CHCC, and learn the ins and outs of coding and documentation for diabetes care services accurately, efficiently and confidently. You will also be provided with worksheet for correct coding and chart with specifics on diabetes complications.
