CD-10 Coding Basics Medicare Fee-For-Service National Provider Call

On Wednesday, June 4, at 1:30-3pm ET, the Medicare Learning Network will be hosting an ICD-10 Coding Basics National Provider Call.

To Register: Visit MLN Connects™ Upcoming Calls. Space may be limited, register early.

HHS expects to release an interim final rule in the near future that will include a new compliance date that would require the use of ICD-10 beginning October 1, 2015. Providers would have an extra year to prepare. During this MLN Connects™ National Provider Call, join us for a keynote presentation on more ICD-10 coding basics by Sue Bowman from the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), along with updates from CMS. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.

Agenda:

  • CMS updates, including the partial code freeze and 2015 code updates
  • Why ICD-9-CM is being replaced with ICD-10-CM
  • Benefits of ICD-10-CM
  • Similarities and differences from ICD-9-CM
  • Coding: Process of assigning a diagnosis code, 7th character, placeholder "x,” excludes notes, unspecified codes, external cause of injury codes, type of encounter
  • Documentation tips
  • How to obtain answers to coding questions
  • How to request modifications to ICD-10-CM

Target Audience: Medical coders, physicians, physician office staff, nurses and other non-physician practitioners, provider billing staff, health records staff, vendors, educators, system maintainers, laboratories, and all Medicare providers
