Dear Education Colleagues,

Are you familiar with all the ICD-10 changes coming your way? Are you certain exactly where to find morphology codes? What has the 8-week rule regarding initial and subsequent MIs changed to? How does laterality effect your coding? How will you correctly code for symptom treatment? What about the management of terminal illnesses with related conditions? Discussions will include the significant advancements between ICD-9 and 10, the newly created complex guidelines encompassing codes, rules including Laterality, Encounters, Activity, and Place of Occurrence. The newly created ICD-10 structure accommodates both technological and medical advances and, allows for more flexibility with the highest level of specificity and clinical detail. New features include the relocation of the Neoplasm Table and why the Hypertension Table is no longer necessary.

We will answer your questions, address your concerns, and teach you the myriad of changes with respect to new laws and requirements in Hospice and Palliative Care at the ICD-10 Boot Camp for Hospice and Palliative Care.

October 1st is fast approaching, let us lead you to Your Success for ICD-10!
