Product Description

Prepare for ICD-10-CM Coding Updates for 2018


ICD-10-CM codes change as of October 1, 2017. This session with expert speaker Jill Young will ensure you get a jump on the new codes and are prepared for the upcoming changes. This session will not only explain the latest additions, revisions and deletions from CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, but also give you the logic behind the background clinical information on them. You will also learn which codes affect your practice and how you can make any appropriate changes in preparation.

After attending this session you will be able to work with your practice’s staff, including physicians, to prepare for use of the new codes and ensure proper documentation and reimbursement. You will get additional clinical information that will ensure you have a better understanding of the codes, as well as helpful material you can use to teach others.
