This webinar will discuss overviews of each of the four sections of 2019 ICD-10-CM Guidelines for Coding and Reporting. These are the guidelines that payers use when processing your claims. It will teach how accurate ICD-10 reporting ties to patient encounter, reimbursement and reporting, how to use chapter 7, how to use the A, D, S & documentation requirements. Expert will give examples of commonly used guidelines, such as sequencing, code first, code also, etiology and manifestation.
Why Should You Attend:
ICD-10-CM was developed to help the coder and healthcare provider to identify the diagnosis to be reported. The diagnosis code supports the medical necessity for the service and tells the payer why the service was performed. It can be the source of denial if it doesn't show the medical necessity for the service performed. Accountable care organizations base part of their reimbursement on a determination of the acuity of their population of patients. That is, some insurance contracts pay a higher rate at the end of a contract year to practices or systems that care for sicker patients.
As our healthcare system has transitioned from fee-for-service medicine, more groups will have these types of adjustments made to their overall payments, making understanding the 2019 ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting an essential part of the patient encounter and key in obtaining accurate reimbursement for the healthcare system.
