Product Description

Payers Are Using The Conversion To ICD-10 As Another Way To Squeeze More Money Out Of The Reimbursements That  Are Paid To The Providers.

It is being said that payers will reimburse based off of the specificity of the ICD-10 diagnosis code chosen – unlike  the current system. This is where proper documentation in the medical record comes into play – the more detailed the documentation – the more specific the ICD-10 codes chosen – and in turn the providers will realize their full reimbursement.

Join us for this On demand webinar by expert speaker Dreama Sloan-Kelly, MD, CCS, who will provide you tips on how to document to the highest level of specificity, guidelines on how documentation is different in the ICD-10 era as opposed to ICD-9, how to encourage providers to document more specifically but still be efficient (quality not quantity), specific examples of how documentation effects the code chosen.

 Session Highlights:

  • Documenting completely so that ICD-10 codes can be chosen at the highest level of specificity.
