Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

Prepare now and be ready on October 1 when over 400 ICD-10-CM code changes go into effect. These changes will impact patient encounters occurring from October 1, 2018 through September 30, 2019. The appropriate selection of diagnosis codes will tell the story of each patient encounter, describe etiologies of the disease process, explain the complications of care, provide a basis for medical necessity, support coverage for payment purposes, identify incidence of disease, and support statistical tracking for healthcare practices.

A number of specialties will be impacted this year. Session includes details on the new 2019 codes for affected newborns of maternal substance use, urethral strictures, myalgia, and exposure to Zika virus. Learn about the code changes for pregnancy, perinatal, pediatric behavioral conditions, appendicitis, postpartum depression, kidney stones, post-surgical infections, and sexual or labor exploitation.

Attend this webinar to ensure your providers are informed of the documentation elements needed to report the new codes. Don’t let improperly coded claims cause unnecessary disruptions with your revenue cycle or place you at audit risks. Gain the latest news on the code and guideline changes in just 90 minutes. The latest news available on ICD-10-CM will be reviewed in this update program.

New for 2019 (effective October 1, 2018):

  • 247 new codes
  • 143 code revisions
  • 51 deletions
  • Update on general and chapter-specific guidelines
