Product Description

Know How to Correctly Use the New ICD-10-CM Manual for Urology Coding and Documentation

CPT® and CMS have announced the recent changes in the ICD-10-CM coding set and documentation rules as late as July 2015, although ICD-10 will certainly begin on October 1, 2015. It becomes most important to understand these rules and changes in how one will document so as to receive proper and timely reimbursements and to avoid denials and the need for resubmissions.

One's knowledge to properly use the new ICD-10-CM manual becomes most important to ensure proper and timely reimbursements and to avoid delays and loss of revenue. The material presented by expert speaker Michael A. Ferragamo Jr., MD, FACS, in this session will address urology, urogynecology and pediatric urology diagnostic coding concerns.

You will learn the new diagnostic concepts noted above and how to maneuver the new 2015 and 2016 ICD-10-CM manual to arrive at the proper diagnostic codes. Didactic materials, examples of correct diagnostic codes and clinical scenarios will be presented to aid in this learning process.
