Product Description

Master Post-Procedure Infection Codes—There Are Lots to Choose From!


The 2019 ICD-10-CM codes introduce nearly 500 changes, the majority of them in Internal Medicine. And the October 1, 2018 take-effect date is looming. Get ready, get set to understand all the nuances of the added and revised codes, and ditch the deleted ones, to make sure your claims get paid in 2019!

Join healthcare coding expert Jill Young for an explanatory, how-to tour of ICD-10 as it pertains to Internal Medicine practices—for both outpatient and inpatient. 

What’s new? You’ll see a handful of new codes that address sexual and labor exploitation, for both adults and children (T74 and T76 series). The 2019 ICD-10 also introduces more than 20 new codes for post-procedure infection (T81.4 series)—and deletes three. There are also 17 added codes for ecstasy poisoning (T43.64 series), as well as more Merkel cell codes, codes addressing Zika virus and cannabis use, and revised lipoprotein and lipedema codes.

Make an investment in your claims-success future by proactively preparing for all 112 ICD-10 coding changes for Internal Medicine. Plus, you’ll boost your clinical documentation improvement (CDI) efforts in the process. After attending this webinar, you’ll have the understanding you need to select codes, recognize and promote proper documentation, and avoid denials and lost reimbursement. Your whole office will thank you!
