9:00 AM EST - 10:00 AM EST
Lesions: Biopsies, Removals, & Repairs

Dianna Foley, RHIA, CCS, CHPS, CDIP
Education Coordinator
OHIMA

Lesions. How can things so small cause such difficulty for coding professionals? This presentation will help by illustrating the coding differences between biopsies and removals both from a CPT and an ICD-10-PCS perspective. Lesion removal methods will be explored. Discussion will include the difference that must be taken into consideration when the lesion removal is into tissue deeper than the skin. The presentation will conclude with information on when it is appropriate to also code a repair procedure when a lesion is removed, along with detail on appropriate coding for tissue repairs.

Objectives:

At the conclusion of the program, attendees should be able to:

  • Recognize the different types of skin biopsies
  • Identify various methods of lesion removal
  • Review the criteria for various removal methods
  • Differentiate between excisions of Integumentary vs. Musculoskeletal System
  • Examine the variety of tissue repairs


10:00 AM EST - 11:00 AM EST
Debridement Coding in the Inpatient and Outpatient Setting

Leigh Poland, RHIA, CCS, CDIP, CIC
VP of Coding Services
AGS Health

We will walk through the ICD-10-PCS and CPT documentation requirements for excisional debridement as well as diagnosis commonly associated with debridement procedures. You will gain a clearer understanding of the documentation requirements & the financial impact associated with incorrect code assignment & incomplete documentation. We will review ICD-10-PCS/CM Official Coding Guidelines; AHA Coding Clinic; AMA CPT Assistant and multiple debridement case studies to gain a greater understanding of the coding and documentation requirements for debridement cases.

Objectives

  • Gain a clearer understanding of the documentation requirements & the financial impact associated with incorrect code assignment & incomplete documentation
  • Review ICD-10-PCS/CM Official Coding Guidelines; AHA Coding Clinic; and AMA CPT Assistant related to debridement
  • Review multiple debridement case studies to gain a greater understanding of the coding and documentation requirements for debridement cases.

Morning Break


11:15 AM EST - 12:15 PM EST  
Exploring Neurostimulator Devices

Dee Mandley, RHIT, CDIP, CCS, CCS-P

This presentation provides an in-depth review of ICD-10-PCS and CPT procedure coding of brain, spinal, and peripheral neurostimulator devices. Medical conditions, anatomy, sample operative notes, and coding resource review rounds out this informative session.

 

 Objectives

  • Describe types of neurostimulator devices
  • Explore medical conditions treated by these devices
  • Review coding resource advice
  • Differentiate CPT codes and PCS tables for neurostimulator procedures


12:15 PM EST - 1:00 PM EST

1:00 PM EST - 2:00 PM EST

An Update for ICD-11

  June Bronnert, MHI, RHIA,
  CCS, CCS-P

  Services
  IMO Health

  Jean Stevens, RHIT, CCS-P
 
Consultant
  Self-Employed

 

 

June and Jean will present an overview of ICD-11 to include a discussion of US progress through The National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS) workgroups and the Request For Information. The progress other countries are making on adoption of the new code set will also be discussed. They will introduce the audience to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) the international standard to describe and measure health and disability in ICD-11. This session will include a review of the basic ICD-11 coding guidelines, browser and coding tools.

Objectives:

  • Understand the progress the United States is making towards adoption of ICD-11 through The National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS) workgroups and the Request For Information
  • Compare international progress of ICD-11 adoption
  • An introduction to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF)
  • An overview of the basic ICD-11 coding guidelines, browser and coding tools.

 

2:00 PM EST - 3:00 PM EST
Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnostic Codes

Gretchen Foley, M.D.
Forensic Psychiatrist
NYS Office of Mental Health

This presentation will review how psychiatrists determine diagnoses for patients with a variety of mental health conditions and cover common codes used in 1) Mood Disorder, 2) Anxiety Disorders, 3) Psychotic Disorders, and 4) Substance Use Disorders and will help coders assist with more accurate billing.

Objectives:

  • Review DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for commonly diagnosed psychiatric conditions
  • Understand how physicians differ in terms of their application of DSM-5 coding
  • Differentiate between DSM-5 coding and ICD-10 coding terminology
  • Collaborate with psychiatric professionals to assist in more accurate coding


3:00 PM EST - 3:15 PM EST
Afternoon Break


3:15 PM EST - 4:15 PM EST
Diagnosis Coding for Psychiatric Illnesses

Dianna Foley, RHIA, CCS, CHPS, CDIP
Education Coordinator
OHIMA

This presentation will focus on the ICD-10-CM coding for psychiatric conditions. Throughout the presentation, including case studies, relevant Coding Clinic and Official Coding Guideline information will be shared. Case studies will be used to illustrate proper coding, identify opportunities for queries, and provide examples of the reimbursement impact of psychiatric coding.

Objectives:

At the conclusion of the presentation, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify ICD-10-CM codes related to psychiatric illnesses
  • Apply Official Coding Guidelines and Coding Clinic information relevant to psychiatric conditions
  • Communicate the impact that appropriate psychiatric diagnosis coding can have on reimbursement
  • Assign correct ICD-10-CM codes for case studies presented
  • Explain the appropriate use of queries for psychiatric illnesses
