The Three R’s of Coding: Risk, Reimbursement and Reward
1 hour Audio and Power Point Presentation
Recorded April 19, 2016
This session provides coders the knowledge to grow their expertise and move forward in the ICD-10 world. Understanding reimbursement issues with ICD-10 and CPT in their hierarchal structure of the coding conventions is essential. The risk of inaccurate coding can and will be detrimental to a practice. Financial goals and their rewards will be met by the practice when appropriate documentation and coding is established. These topics and more are presented in such a way to expand your knowledge and the tools needed to protect the provider and your group's future financial success.
•Identify appropriate conventions of ICD-10 coding and the hierarchal structure of both CPT and ICD-10 relationships.
•Identify best practices of documentation requirements that will minimize compliance risk and reduce issues of down coding and no payment by the payer.
•Review their own coding for possible audit triggers and denials based on data from the first 90 days of ICD-10.
•Improve their ability in identifying and coding the three clinical presentations that impact reimbursement: injuries & poisonings, infectious diseases, and medical conditions.
•Identify the direct relationship between coding and relative value units of revenue generation for their clinic.
