Presented on: Thursday, January 21, 2021 | 1–2:30 p.m. Eastern

Presented by: William E. Haik, MD, FCCP, CDIP

ICD-10-CM/PCS codes change every year. So do the rules governing code assignment. No matter your experience level, staying on top of your CDI game means annually taking a closer look at the clinical indicators needed to qualify a diagnosis as a complication or comorbid condition (CC) or a major CC (MCC).

With a host of changes related to the coronavirus pandemic as well as updates to a number of conditions, everyone practicing or managing CDI and coding teams needs this in-depth clinical perspective from CDI thought leader and founding ACDIS Advisory Board member William E. Haik, MD, FCCP, CDIP. 

This year, CC changes include:

  • Alcohol & opioid use/abuse
  • Cytokine release syndrome
  • Cerebellar ataxia
  • Cerebrospinal fluid leaks
  • Immunodeficiencies
  • Pulmonary eosinophilia

MCC changes include:

  • COVID-19
  • 18 new codes related to sickle cell disease
  • New codes classifying esophagitis
  • New codes to capture neonatal cerebral infarction
  • Updated CKD staging

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • List criteria that qualifies a diagnosis to be considered as an “other” diagnosis
  • Discuss the role of compliant documentation in MS-DRG CC/MCC capture
  • Understand coding and clinical documentation requirements related to COVID-19 and associated conditions
  • Identify new CC/MCC additions and deletions relevant to CDI and coding practices
  • Analyze clinical indicators of selected diagnoses to improve queries
