Product Description

Get Ready for New Newborn & Child Exploitation Codes

They're coming. On October 1, 2018, nearly 500 new, revised, and deleted ICD-10 diagnostic codes will take effect, with 67 affecting Pediatrics practices. Not having a handle on these updates could put a real crimp in your future reimbursement rate—especially given the changing rules of value-based payment models (e.g., MIPS). So get ready!

In this essential 2019 ICD-10-CM webinar, coding expert Donelle Holle will walk you through the diagnostic code updates specific to Pediatrics and give you a quick and easy tool to determine what new codes should be added to your charge ticket or EHR. She'll also detail the steps necessary to ensure that your documentation supports medical necessity, and reveal other actions you can take to improve your billing and reimbursements in the new year.

What's new? The preliminary 2019 ICD-10 code lists both added and revised codes for “newborn affected by maternal use” of various drugs (P04.1 code series). Other added codes include those specific to child sexual exploitation and forced labor (T74 and T76 ranges), Angelman Syndrome (Q93.51), and Zika virus (Z20.821).

Don't miss this opportunity to get a step-by-step tour of the 2019 ICD-10 code list. Learn the exact coding conventions for a variety of diagnoses that you regularly see in Pediatric offices and gain proven techniques to avoid claims denials and payment delays—and capture the full patient story every time.
