Stay Current with New ICD-10 Pathology Codes for 2018


2018 ICD-10-CM coding updates have been released. Included in this yearly release of new codes are the ICD-10 guidelines for coding with revised and updated language. Are there changes that affect you and your coding? Understanding the six columns of the neoplasm table can be daunting at times. Especially for those that don’t work with the table every day.

In this session, expert speaker Jill Young will offer simple clear explanations for each column and will explain which situations you can use the unspecified vs. uncertain column in. Staying current with new codes and understanding old rules are a must for you to assign the proper pathology codes.
