ICD-10 is an updated system for disease reporting, conditions and various other factors that affect healthcare. Various organizational and managerial tasks need to be made to ensure that you can face the post-implementation challenges. First up, you need to prepare and implement a training program, rework the free tickets, update software on practice management, establish the policies of documentation as well as an internal audit system to surely ensure compliance and accuracy, if you have not done so earlier.
This session by expert speaker Jeffrey Restuccio, CPC, CPC-H, MBA will provide managers, coders, billers and providers in Optometry and Ophthalmology with the information they need to improve their ICD-10 education post transition.
In ICD-10 the increase in the number of codes seems formidable, though much of the increase is due to bilateral eye diagnosis codes (right, left, bilateral and unspecified). For example, in ICD-9 procedures were reported with modifiers RT and LT but in ICD-10 most Eyecare diagnoses will be reported by eye or eyelid. The second major issue is specificity. More codes will mean more specific descriptions of diagnoses. All this and much more will be covered during this webinar.
Most Eyecare professionals are seen to be not following the coding concepts of ICD-9. It is very important for all the Eyecare professionals to enhance as well as improve their ICD-9 coding to understand and improve their ICD-10 coding system.
The training session will include value-added information such as,
