With the complete revamp of procedural coding in ICD-10 PCS, good clinical documentation helps to “tell the story”. ICD-10 PCS will provide a more complete clinical picture of patient care, reduce risk, and/or manage risk, in addition to providing a more complete picture of their medical/clinical records (HIPAA), and the entire coding/billing processes for reimbursement from 3rd party payers and insurance companies. Hence, becoming proficient in coding ICD-10 PCS is a priority, as the conversion deadline is fast approaching.
Join expert speaker Lori-Lynne A. Webb, CPC, CCS-P, CCP, CHDA, CDIP, COBGC, AHIMA approved ICD-10-CM/PCS trainer, in this 60-minute webinar to help you and your facility provide clear cut and accurate coding to substantiate medical necessity and “proof” when claims are submitted to 3rd party carriers (insurance companies) for reimbursement.
This webinar will provide in depth clinical documentation strategies for facilities and Hospital based ultrasound techs and coders to put in place in preparation for the conversion to ICD-10 PCS. The concept behind this is to prepare staff and coders regarding the changes in ICD-10 PCS from ICD-9 Volume 3.
Lori-Lynn will also cover strategies to help providers document more clearly and concisely for the needs of ICD-10 PCS. The rationale behind this education is to help the providers themselves be better prepared to document clearly, so their coders/billers/managers can more easily and successfully choose the correct ICD-10 PCS code and make the transition to ICD-10 PCS more seamless.
This is the nuts & bolts of what is encompassed within a patient visit to the facility for OB ultrasound and Gyn and Pelvic ultrasound. The visit can be long or short, but the documentation must “tell the story” of why the patient is seeking care, what is being evaluated, why it was evaluated, and the plan of care moving forward.
