It has been four years since the last regular annual update to the ICD-9-CM and ICD-10 code sets. On October 1, 2016, ICD-10 will include over 1,900 new codes including four significant changes to Eye care codes as well as 800 newly released 2017 ICD-10 injury codes.
Join this session by expert speaker Jeffrey Restuccio, CPC, COC, MBA, to cover not only codes directly related to Eye care, but also those peripherally related. Making even a small mistake can lead to significant denials and revenue losses for your practice.
Regardless of your level of training, this conference will help you weather the storm coming on October 1, 2016, with the first update to ICD-10 in several years and the ruling that Medicare and other insurance companies will be allowed to deny claims due to "unspecified” diagnosis codes.
Now is the time to be prepared. Don't let the insurance companies deny your claims and reduce your income. If your coders and providers have not had comprehensive ICD-10 coding training (at least six hours), you will not be able to fix this in just one or two hours after Oct. 1. It takes training, periodic audits, reviews and continued training and monitoring. In addition to new code changes, Jeff will address the concept of “disease specificity” in relation to the Oct. 1 updated guidelines concerning carrier reimbursement.
