C64 - ICD-10-CM: How to Optimize for Accurate Diagnosis and Reimbursement

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Practice, Policy, and Ethics
Director(s): Jeffrey Buchhalter MD, FAAN
Description: On October 1, 2015, the ICD-10-CM code set became required for all transactions involving reimbursement from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, as well as for other third-party payers. A one-year grace period was granted that allowed full reimbursement for using the correct code family without full specificity. Presenters will use a case-based approach focusing on practical aspects of ICD-10 including optimizing coding specificity for common neurologic disorders (e.g. stroke, epilepsy, headache), how codes relate to value-based reimbursement and MACRA, and how more accurate coding results in fewer denials.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to code common neurologic disorders to the highest degree of specificity to reflect the severity of illness, know the codes for several of the most commonly encountered disorders seen by neurologists, understand how coding plays an essential role in value-based reimbursement, and avoid and respond to denials for services rendered.
