COVID-19 is the ultimate moving target. But that doesn't excuse your facility from the consequences of incorrect or incomplete coding, imprecise provider documentation and inappropriate billing. Since the pandemic's beginnings, Dr. Erica Remer has been closely monitoring the evolution of the disease and coupling this extensive knowledge with the latest best practices in ICD-10-CM coding and documentation. Now she's ready to share her latest findings and guidance in this exclusive ICD10monitor webcast.
As she's done in previous ICD10monitor webcasts, Dr. Remer will review current COVID-19 trends, including the rapid spread of the Delta variant. Drawing from real-world examples and coder questions, she'll walk you through areas of confusion that can prevent you from obtaining accurate, complete clinical documentation and arriving at the correct code assignments. You'll also get a look at what's ahead for COVID-19 coding beyond the pandemic.
Why This is Relevant:
Coding for COVID-19 is inherently risky due to constant change and rampant confusion. And, by risky we mean putting you in the crosshairs for payer denials. Also, inaccurate or incomplete reporting degrades the quality of the epidemiological data used for public health initiatives. In other words, there's a lot at stake. Make sure your coding and documentation comply with current rules and best practices by attending this timely, actionable webcast.
