Product Description

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.

Join expert speaker Kim Garner-Huey, MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO, in this audio session to know everything you need to know about coding for diabetes and the recent ICD-10-CM changes for 2017.
