Of the approximately 500 code changes in the 2019 ICD-10-CM, gastroenterology will see just 17 new and revised codes. But, as you know, even a few new coding rules can wreak havoc with your office’s claims if you aren’t fully trained on what they mean and how to use them. Plus, if you don’t know your ICD-10 codes inside and out, your claims won’t tell the full patient story—especially important for co-morbidities and future MIPS reimbursement rates.
Join gastro coding expert Jill Young for comprehensive coverage of what’s new and how to adjust your coding and billing practices accordingly—by the looming deadline: October 1, 2018! After all, a proactive approach is your best bet to battling future denials and maximizing your clinical documentation improvement (CDI) efforts.
What’s new? Eight of the added codes (code series K35) cover appendicitis—with/without abscess, perforation, and localized peritonitis—so know those details to be sure your documentation fits the bill.
Don’t miss this opportunity to get a step-by-step walk through the ICD-10 2019 code list. Learn the exact coding conventions for a variety of diagnoses that you regularly see in gastro offices—and cut down on your temptation to throw up your hands and reach for “unspecified.”
