Each year the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) implements changes to the current ICD-10-CM for professional medical services. These codes are reported on the CMS-1500 claim form or electronically to identify the medical necessity of medicals services and procedures performed by physicians and other healthcare providers.  Anyone that is involved in the assignment of these codes must understand the coding changes for not only proper reimbursement of medical claims but to also meet compliance guidelines of their practice as well as the insurance company policies.  The ICD-10-CM changes are effective on October 1st annually.  Proper coding is critical in avoiding claims denials and other causes of delay in reimbursements.  This webinar will highlight the effect of the changes on October 1st, and walk through changes to the Official Guidelines of ICD-10-CM for the confirmation on how to use these codes correctly.
