October 1, 2017, will bring new ICD-10-CM codes, which will be immediately effective. A number of new urology ICD-10-CM codes will be introduced.

Ferragamo Jr., MD, FACS, will review the newly proposed changes to urology ICD-10-CM coding for 2017 and 2018 as well as some important older concepts in diagnostic coding so that you may be able to correctly use proper diagnostic codes and avoid claim denials and potential loss of significant revenue.
You will receive tips and corrective measures to ensure correct diagnostic codes for various clinical scenarios. You will be provided with informative charts and tables to aid in understanding both past and new processes of diagnostic coding. New added codes, deletions of older codes, and revision of codes for October 1, 2017, and 2018 will be provided to allow easy access to this important information needed for this year and the next year.
