Date and Time: December 3, 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Obstetric coding is difficult under the best of circumstances, but now that you have some familiarity with ICD-10-CM, you know how much tougher it can get. If you think hands-on practice will be the key to avoiding denials under the new, more specific system, then this is the session for you. Applying the guidelines to actual cases, this two-hour session will concentrate on how to convert physician documentation into specific diagnosis codes. By getting to practice with up-to-date cases, you will become comfortable with your diagnosis coding choices. This session will include a bonus reference that converts the ICD-9-CM obstetric codes into their ICD-10-CM equivalents.
