Learn 2018 ICD-10-CM/PCS Coding Updates for Ob/Gyn

In order to receive the appropriate reimbursement for provided services, ICD-10-CM diagnoses must be correctly applied and correlated with the appropriate documentation. An Ob/Gyn practice’s staff, including physicians, must know the current ICD-10-CM and PCS diagnosis and procedure guidelines that have implications for obstetrics and gynecology.

This webinar with expert speaker Lori-Lynne Webb will provide in-depth strategies and the most up-to-date concepts for ICD-10-CM diagnosis updates for the office and ICD-10-PCS updates for hospitals that come with coding and billing for Ob/Gyn services. Lori-Lynne will discuss the important new, revised and deleted codes in relation to the ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS code sets, using information straight from the CDC and the WHO. She will provide the ins and outs for correct application of the guidelines and procedure documentation criteria and standards of ICD-10-CM/PCS, as well as documentation requirements for a successful Ob/Gyn hospitalist practice. She will go over documentation tips for evaluation and management (E&M) and wellness and medical necessity documentation and coding.

Lori-Lynn will also provide coding tools and strategies to help implement the correct processes used for documentation for critical and basic E&M and wellness clinical medical record documentation. Better understanding of the CPT E&M rules and good clinical documentation goes hand in hand with correct, clean claims and better overall revenue returns, patient satisfaction and employee buy-in. Let this coding compliance expert show you how to create a better work-flow and increase your Ob/Gyn practice’s revenues as a result.
