Podiatry billing and coding requires very specific and appropriate diagnosis coding because of insurance carriers’ strict policies and procedures related to coverage for podiatry services. Podiatrists and office staff should have the knowledge necessary to understand how ICD-10 will relate to these insurance policies and procedures, and coding for common diagnoses to the highest level of specificity for timely and accurate reimbursement.
Medical offices may also have to consider replacing encounter/superbills with other means of capturing procedures and services due to the expansion of diagnosis codes from ICD-9 to ICD-10.
Join expert speaker Lynn Anderanin, CPC, CPC-I, COSC in this session, where she will convert the most common ICD-9 codes used by Podiatrists to ICD-10. She will also address best practices for medical documentation, and use real podiatry documentation as case studies to clarify what is needed.
Who should attend?
Podiatrists, coders, collections staff, surgery schedulers, practice managers/administrators
