Auditing Surgical Operative Reports: Keep Your Money by Staying Compliant ICD-10 Coding for Otitis Media, Pharyngitis, Asthma, and Other URI's Seen In The Pediatric and Primary Care Office

For years practices have taken their documentation and their operative report coding for granted. Many have asked the question: what are the chances that we will get audited? Unfortunately many are finding out in so many ways how destructive a payer audit can actually be. To avoid this, it is important for groups, hospitals, and surgical centers to learn how to conduct their own internal audits. This webinar will teach you how to conduct internal surgical operative report audits – ensuring that your providers are documenting appropriately and coding to the highest allowable level. This will ensure proper payment, no lost revenue due to missed procedures, and ensure compliance so no take back can be levied by payers. Practice managers, office managers, doctors, NP’s, PA’s, nurses, MA’s, billers, coders, and front desk personnel will all benefit from this webinar.

This webinar is designed to take you through the ICD-10 codes that will most commonly be encountered during visits dealing with upper respiratory infections in the Primary Care and Pediatric office -- such as: otitis media, pharyngitis, and asthma, to name a few. This webinar is designed to teach the biller, coder, and provider how to choose the most specific ICD-10 code for the diagnosis of the patient based on the medical documentation. Documentation pointers will be addressed to ensure providers document what is needed to choose the most specific ICD-10 code possible. We will review all relevant anatomy necessary to make you a successful and more specific coder. We will also review the codes and how they transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10. We will review pertinent diseases and conditions along with signs and symptoms that will make you a successful coder and allow you to code to the highest level of specificity. REMEMBER: Specificity is the key with ICD-10-CM coding – and many payers may adjust their reimbursements based on the specificity of the code submitted – the more specific the code the higher the payment. So why not learn now.

Practice managers, office managers, doctors, NP’s, PA’s, nurses, MA’s, billers, coders, and front desk personnel will all benefit from this webinar.
