Product Description

Prep for Codes Addressing Sexual Exploitation & Forced Labor

It’s that time of year again—come October 1, 2018 new ICD-10 codes will be in place for mental and behavioral health. To submit foolproof psychiatry claims, avoid denials or lost reimbursement, and boost your clinical documentation improvement (CDI) efforts, get proactive. More payers are requesting to view patient records prior to approving claims and MIPS is changing reimbursement rules, so it’s more important than ever that you understand all the nuances of each ICD-10 code.

Join independent healthcare consultant Dorothy D. Steed to learn how the 50 added codes and 5 revised codes will impact your mental and behavioral coding & billing practices in 2019. Plus, she’ll fill you in on how to ensure your documentation supports medical necessity—and reveal the specific actions that can improve your reimbursement success.

What’s new: The new psychiatry codes focus primarily on encounters of sexual and forced labor exploitation among both adults and children (T74 and T76 code sets). And the revised codes address factitious disorder (F68), adding the “imposed on self” phrase. This webinar will teach you the nuances of each code and how to adapt to the increased specificity.

After attending, you’ll be equipped to bill for mental and behavioral health encounters in both primary care and emergency department encounters. And you’ll have the confidence you need to use the new codes to better describe a patient’s condition and more fully capture each patient’s story.
