Product Description

You have 61 new and revised headache codes -- and a new classification system -- to learn by October. Start now!

ICD-9-CM 2009 delivered a hefty package for coders who report headache diagnoses. Welcome new category 339 for headaches and major revisions to category 346 for migraines -- a total of 60 new and/or revised codes with their own unique classification system. But learning all this new information doesn't have to give you a headache.

Join expert speaker and seasoned headache coder Marvel J. Hammer, RN, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, ACS-PM, CHCO, for this 1-hour audioconference where you'll get up to speed on the latest headache codes. She'll break down the new classifications step-by-step and give you tools to accurately report your provider’s services. You'll even receive a reference list for terminology used in conjunction with headaches and migraines.

Here’s a sampling of the details you’ll learn:

  • New ICD-9 codes for headaches and migraines, from A to Z.
