Is cerebrovascular accident coding causing you real headaches? Chances are good that when you’ve got a tricky CVA or TIA coding situation on your hands, you’re losing valuable time poring over your coding manual trying to figure out what to report.
In this 60-minute session, Karla R. Lovaasen, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P, an independent healthcare and coding consultant with over 30 years of experience, will provide the latest on CVA and TIA coding. She’ll also review the types of CVAs, go over cerebral infarction and late effects guidelines, and provide case studies to help you see how the coding concepts work.
Outcome: You’ll develop confidence in your ability to code diseases of the cerebrovascular system, comply with the ICD-9-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting -- and obtain optimal reimbursement for your facility.
Who should attend: Inpatient coders, coding managers/supervisors, coding consultants, independent coding contractors, coding instructors, coding personnel with credentials of CCA, CCS, RHIT, RHIA or others in hospital coding.
