This educational program will build upon the basics of ICD-10 by providing in-depth ICD-10 coding, documentation and payment information for a variety of settings for speech and language pathology (SLP) services.  Examples provided in the session will focus on speech and language pathology case studies for adult and geriatric services. This intermediate session includes coding resources and additional tips related to transitioning to ICD-10 (i.e. end-to-end testing). A hands-on approach using case scenarios will be used to incorporate documentation changes and compare ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes. The financial impact of ICD-10 with regard to payment for adult and geriatric speech and language pathology services will also be introduced.
