With the transition to ICD-10 now complete and providers submitting claims to the Medicare program and other insurance carriers, questions and confusion remain regarding when does an ICD-10 code requires a 7th character and when one is required, how do I know which one to use? In addition, providers are still uncertain when an external cause code is required and if the patient had surgery do we or do we not have to use the aftercare ICD-10 codes.
This 2-hour webinar program will teach participants how to determine which ICD-10 codes require a 7th character and when one is required, how to select the appropriate 7th character based upon the status of the patient. In addition, the webinar will teach participants when an external cause code, activity code and/or aftercare code could be reported on a claim form and how to select the appropriate code. Lastly, the webinar will have an extended Q&A time to answer any questions participants may have as they relate to ICD-10.
At the conclusion of this webinar presentation, participants will:
- Understand when an ICD-10 code requires a 7th character
- Define initial encounter, subsequent encounter and sequela
- Be able to append the appropriate 7th character to an ICD-10 code, when applicable
- Describe when an external cause code could be reported on the claim form
- Understand when to use place of occurrence, activity, and/or aftercare ICD-10 codes
