Product Description

Prepare for the Code Changes—including Several New Pediatric Diagnoses


CPT® and ICD-10 code changes can be confusing, and some of the descriptions you come across may not seem to make any sense. But you need to make sure you’re selecting the most specific codes so that you don’t risk ire from payers. The new codes can be hard to interpret, but having a good understanding of when and how to use them will prevent billing errors. If you haven’t already started preparing for the coming code changes, you could be missing out on some serious reimbursement.

Polish up your coding for 2019 in this information-packed coverage of CPT® and ICD-10 code updates by pediatrics coding specialist Donelle Holle. Holle will guide you through key details of the old unchanged codes, teach you how to use and document the new, tricky CPT® 2019 codes specific to pediatrics, and share the new code for chronic care management. Holle will bring you up to speed with the new 99451-99454 codes and explain interprofessional management service and remote monitoring. She will discuss the revision to the current 99446-9 codes; show you how to find the resequenced developmental and behavioral screening codes; and discuss the inclusions in the Z codes—such as added vision and hearing screening to the well care codes for children.

Holle will also review the older diagnosis codes to ensure that you’re using all your ICD-10 codes appropriately. Attending this session will arm you with the knowledge and the confidence you need to use the new CPT® and ICD-10 codes properly. Plus, you’ll pick up great advice on how best to integrate the code changes into your billing processes for 2019.
