This webinar will address this tricky and subjective topic by presenting key points about coding for additional diagnoses for hospital inpatient/outpatient and physicians alike.

Objectives:

  • Determine which sections of the coding guidelines apply to different coding settings
  • Compare and contrast facility and professional-fee coding
  • Apply a quick-reference checklist to diagnostic coding
  • Recognize chronic and other conditions that impact patient visits
  • Determine when additional codes for signs and symptoms should be coded in addition to a related condition to establish medical necessity

  • Facility Coders (inpatient/outpatient)
  • Clinical Documentation Improvement Professionals
  • Professional Fee Coders
  • Facility outpatient coders
  • Billing professionals
  • Coding compliance professionals
  • Practice managers
