After years of delayed implementation, ICD-10 is finally HERE!. Accurate use of neurosurgical diagnostic coding is critical to reporting services and receiving appropriate reimbursement. Instead of getting all worked up because you and your staff were ill-prepared, join expert speaker Greg Przybylski, MD in this program to get the confidence to catch up with the ICD-10 training when there is still time.
Most cranial neurosurgeons treat similar problems on a daily basis, resulting in a manageable list of diagnostic codes to learn. Based on the most commonly treated conditions, a summary of the more frequently treated diagnoses will be given in this session, showing the transition from the former ICD-9 to the new ICD-10 codes. You’ll also get helpful resources for determining additional ICD-10 codes.
Every E&M service and procedure will require submission of an accurate ICD-10 code to demonstrate the medical reason for the service. Rather than struggling to make the change, this session will help you prepare for this transition with both a review of the more common diagnoses encountered, as well as a framework to customize a diagnostic list for your charge master.
