The 2019 ICD-10-CM codes introduce nearly 500 changes, 33 of them in Obstetrics and Gynecology. As in several other specialties, the devil is in the details of these changes. And you need to get them right by October 1, 2018!
Join women’s health coding expert Lori Lynne Webb to learn the intricacies of what’s new—and why—so that you can appropriately modify your Ob-Gyn coding and billing practices. Don’t risk future denials. Focus on what you can do now to maximize reimbursement on everything from lumps in the breast to uterine disorders.
What’s new? The 2019 ICD-10 adds a code for maternal depression screening (Z13.32) and two for personal history of sexual exploitation (Z62.813 and Z91.42). There are more than a dozen new codes for multiple-gestation pregnancies (O30 series). And five of the added codes cover doubling of the uterus (complete, partial, unspecified, and other—the Q51 series), which means you’ll need to sharpen your (and your physicians’) understanding of what the documentation must say to support each.
Webb will ease your ICD-10 anxiety and explain the proper coding conventions for a variety of diagnoses that you regularly see in Obstetrics and Gynecology offices. Getting ICD-10 coding right isn’t just about getting individual claims paid. Proper training also means you’ll upgrade your clinical documentation improvement (CDI) efforts—and your success with MIPs reimbursement. Don’t miss this chance to equip yourself and your team to submit clean Ob-Gyn claims in 2019!
