ICD-10 Utilization in the NEW Quality Payment World Course
The frenzy of ICD-10-CM may seem as if it has finally settled, but the specificity of the codes has changed the way carriers are reviewing claims. The diagnosis code updates that took effect last October affected policy limits and reimbursement rates. It is now more important than ever to avoid being locked into outdated diagnoses, such as lumbago and cervicalgia. It is time to dig deeper into the coding updates and use the diagnosis codes to tell the true picture of why the patient has disease. New codes for complications, medical necessity and even patient non-compliance may change the way you file the claim form. Learn how to tell the whole story through your ICD-10 code communication.
