With the transition to ICD-10 now complete, providers of outpatient physical therapy services who specialize in pelvic health continue to have questions which ICD-10 codes they should use and what documentation they should have in the medical record to support the ICD-10 codes utilized. This 2-hour webinar program will focus completely on pelvic health case scenarios seen by physical therapists and physical therapist assistants in the outpatient setting.
This 2-hour webinar program will build upon the basics of ICD-10 by providing in-depth ICD-10 coding and documentation scenario’s for physical therapy services with a focus on pelvic health. Conditions discussed will include, but are not limited to:
• Low back pain in pregnancy
• Incontinence (stress, urge, mixed)
• Fecal incontinence
• Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome
• Pelvic pain (Endometriosis, Dyspareunia, Prostatitis, SI Joint Dysfunction)
• Diastasis recti post-partum
• Pediatric nocturia
A hands-on approach using case scenarios will be used to teach participants what key words must be documented and how to select the most appropriate ICD-10 codes to place on the claim based on their documentation. In addition, the webinar will discuss when the 7th character is required and distinguish between the initial encounter, subsequent encounter and sequela. This intermediate to advanced session includes coding resources and additional tips related to transitioning to ICD-10.
At the conclusion of this audio presentation, participants will:
- Apply ICD-10 coding concepts to physical therapy pelvic health services
- Understand the impact of ICD-10 coding to physical therapy practice in terms of documentation & billing
- Identify how many ICD-10 codes need to be or should be on the claim form
- Describe when a 7th character is required in ICD-10 coding
- Define initial encounter, subsequent encounter and sequela
- Utilize ICD-10 resources for an effective transition to ICD-10
