Each year there are additions, revisions, and deletion s to the ICD-10-CM manual that become effective on October 1st.

The annual changes to the ICD-10-CM manual are created by CMS and the World Health Organization (WHO) for providers to report the diagnoses codes for the services rendered to patient in any setting. ICD-10-CM codes are used by many insurance carriers to determine the medical necessity of a procedure or service, which will then result in payment or denial. Attendees will get the information about the changes in all specialties so that they are up to date with the most current ICD-10-CM codes, and how they should be applied in their office. Without at session like this, changes may be overlooked, and claims will be denied, causing delays in reimbursement. Also, ICD-10-CM changes may cause documentation to change in order to substantiate the diagnoses codes. Attendees will understand what will be important in the documentation for the correct ICD-10-CM code(s) to be chosen. We will also review the 2019 ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines that are a guide to correct diagnoses coding and must be followed. These guidelines give specific direction to anyone choosing ICD-10-CM codes, for the proper code assignment.
