Ensure Your Claims Data Accurately Captures Intensity of Services for Diabetic Conditions/Complications

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. ICD-10-CM provides a new way to provide the most specific and accurate information to support the services the patient needs.
