Despite repeated delays in implementation, the change to ICD-10 diagnostic coding is finally HERE! Every E&M service and procedure will require submission of an accurate ICD-10 code to demonstrate the medical reason for the service. This training session will give you the confidence in using the new ICD-10 diagnostic spine codes with confidence and precision.
Expert speaker Gregory Przybylski, MD, will help you simplify your coding with both a review of the more common diagnoses encountered as well as a framework to customize a diagnostic list for your charge master. Most spine surgeons and interventionalists 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 showing the transition from the former ICD-9 to the new ICD-10 codes.
This session will also provide you resources for determining additional ICD-10 codes since accurate use of diagnostic coding is critical to reporting services and receiving appropriate reimbursement.
