Okay, so 2019 ICD-10-CM is here and you’ve got 30 new and revised Neurology codes to contend with. Start smart by learning how—and why—these changes matter to your billing & coding practices. Plus, “tune up” your overall diagnosis coding strategy to maximize revenue—and your office’s clinical documentation improvement efforts—in 2019.
What’s new? In this training webinar, neurology coding expert Kim Huey will help you make sense of added codes—including those for clonic hemifacial spasm, muscular dystrophy, and cerebral infarction. Plus, she’ll explain when to use the new Z13.4 pediatric codes for screenings for development delays—global, other, and unspecified. She’ll also provide guidance on the revisions to R40.233 coma scale codes.
After attending this session, you will be prepared to reach for something better than “unspecified,” explain to your team what documentation is required to support claims—and, importantly, correct any ICD-10 Neurology diagnosis coding mistakes that are costing your office. 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. Get equipped for the take-effect date for the updated codes: October 1, 2018.
