Scoping the Scene: Coding Bronchoscopies in ICD-10-PCS

(3 customer reviews)

Individual pricing: $22.00


This webinar is no longer eligible for CEUs. The webinar recording will be available until 7.31.21.



Although commonly performed in the outpatient setting, hospital inpatients often undergo bronchoscopic procedures that can present challenges for the coder. With often scant documentation and potential DRG impact depending on which body part is selected in the coding process, coders need to understand and code these procedures correctly.


  • Review respiratory anatomy compared to the ICD-10-PCS body part values
  • Describe common procedures performed through a bronchoscope
  • Discuss the appropriate body part and reimbursement impact for procedures, such as bronchoalveolar lavage and transbronchial biopsy

Target Audience

  • Facility inpatient coders
  • Compliance and revenue integrity professionals
  • Coding Auditors and Educators
  • Coding managers
