ICD-10 diagnostic coding begins on October 1, 2015 with no grace period for practice coding. This represents a big change in diagnostic coding for all urologists and their staff. This change will affect all office workers and not only the physicians or coders. Join Michael A. Ferragamo, Jr., MD, FACS, in this audio-conference to gain an understanding of new codes, rules, and functionality of this relatively new system of diagnostic coding.
A simple but complete explanation of the nature of the new codes, how they should be chosen, and cross-walks between ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes will be provided to attendees to ease formation of a new super-bill based on ICD-10 codes.
