ICD-10-CM is being implemented on Thursday, October 1, 2015. CMS has said very firmly that there will be no delays in the implementation date. With less than six months left until implementation, it is high time you prepare for the upcoming codìng modifications and guard your practice with smart thinking. Changes in diagnostic codìng will require changes and improvements in clinical documentation by service providers.
If the documentation is not improved, the billing and codìng departments will not be able to code the services, or will have to rely on unspecified codes. Payers have stated that they will deny services if unspecified codes are used on a regular basis. Practices do not need to give the third party payers another reason to deny claims and delay payment to the practices.
Join this session by expert speaker Barbara Cobuzzi and gear up for the imminent ICD-10-CM overhaul and make sure that codìng is done in a specified and appropriate manner to avoid any loss of claims. Shield your practice from any possible loss of revenue.
