Product Description

Learn How to Code, Bill and Report COVID-19 Infections in 2020.

 

As COVID-19, the official name for the Coronavirus 2019, can cause a range of illnesses from little to no symptoms, to those affected being severely ill and even dying.  Symptoms can include fever, cough and shortness of breath and may appear from 2 days to 14 days (although the 14 may change to a higher number).  How to code for testing due to exposure vs signs and symptoms vs confirmed illnesses is the challenge.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued supplemental guidelines for the coding of the varying scenarios your office may be presented with.  The information in this webinar will be based on these additional official ICD-10-CM.

Learn how (and much more) in this information-packed session by coding and billing guru Jill Young. Also, review the coding and clinical documentation requirements for Coronavirus Covid-19 so you don’t miss out on deserved reimbursement.

After attending this session, you’ll have a confidence to code, bill and report in a compliant manner and also appropriately identify the illness of their patient without inappropriately reporting Coronavirus Covid-19.
