ICD-10 Webcast Offers Last-Minute Training


Medicare’s half-hearted attempt at a reprieve notwithstanding, the deadline for switching to the ICD-10 code set is still Oct. 1. To put it bluntly, if you don’t use ICD-10 codes starting Oct. 1, you won’t get paid. A widely publicized TMA survey released last month found that nearly two-thirds of Texas physicians have little or no confidence that their practice is prepared to transition to ICD-10 by the deadline. And three-quarters said they either have not started or have made only some of the switch to the new system; solo practitioners are especially behind. To help you try to catch up, we are rebroadcasting our Essentials in ICD-10 Coding seminar on both Sept. 18 and Sept. 25, from 12:30-3:30 pm CT. This webcast dives into the ICD-10-CM code set and delivers a deeper understanding for staff who touch diagnosis data — managers, billers, coders, and front desk and clinical staff. Receive detailed answers to your ICD-10 questions and gain confidence in working with these codes. Registration is still open.
