Why This is Relevant:
The AHA ICD-10-CM/PCS Coding Clinic serves as the regulatory foundation for application of codes to conditions and procedures and identifies the appropriate situation(s) in which to apply or not apply and submit codes for reimbursement purposes. The coding professional is responsible for maintaining their skills and ensuring that compliant coding is practiced in order to ensure the organization’s revenue and data integrity.
In the past, for example, diabetes with complications codes were only permitted to be combined if the provider documented the link between the diabetes and the complication. The rules then changed linking the diabetes with the complication automatically. Multiple questions arose from this change and Coding Clinic addressed them and provided guidance for accurate coding of diabetes and its complications based on this new guidance.
Documentation is linked to clinical coding and understanding the coding rules will assist in knowing when to query.
