This 2-hour webinar program will build upon the basics of ICD-10 by providing in-depth ICD-10 coding, documentation and payment information for speech-language pathology therapy services. Examples provided in the webinar will focus on speech therapy case studies in pediatrics, adult, and geriatrics. Conditions discussed will include, but not limited to, autism, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, vocal cord nodules, child and adult onset stuttering, traumatic brain injury, cleft palate and cleft lip, dysphagia, traumatic versus non-traumatic hematoma’s, aphasia, mixed expressive-receptive aphasia, and much more.
A hands-on approach using case scenarios will be used to incorporate documentation changes and compare ICD-10 to ICD-9 codes. In addition, the webinar will discuss when the 7th character is required and distinguish between the initial encounter, subsequent encounter and sequela for visits due to a traumatic injury. Lastly, the webinar will explain the meanings of Excludes 1 and Excludes 2 and provide examples of each.
This intermediate session includes coding resources and additional tips related to ICD-10.
