Simplify Complex ICD-10-CM Coding for Diabetes

Loyal Listener Library

Presented on: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 | 1:00–2:30 p.m. ET

Presented by: Sarah Humbert, RHIA & Temeka Davis, RHIT

When reporting diabetic conditions in ICD-10-CM, coders must be aware of reporting requirements and guidelines in order to report the most appropriate codes. For example, Coding Clinic, Third Quarter 2018_,_ instructs that type 1.5 diabetes should be captured with a code from ICD-10-CM code category E13.- (other specified diabetes mellitus). Even when coders are aware of ever-changing guidance, reporting for diabetes is complex thanks to diabetic ulcers, kidney disease, hyperosmolar hyperglycemic nonketotic syndrome, and other diabetic complications.

During this 90-minute webinar, Sarah Humbert, RHIA, and Temeka Davis, RHIT, will review combination codes and complications associated with diabetes and teach listeners how to capture them in ICD-10-CM. Through case studies and coding examples, the speakers will provide coders with the details they need to decipher provider documentation and accurately report these conditions. The speakers will also review relevant Coding Clinic guidance and the ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting. The presentation will conclude with a live Q&A during which attendees can submit questions.

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

  • Better understand diabetes and common complications
  • Identify opportunities for improving documentation
  • Understand when a query is needed for better clarification and accurate code assignment for diabetic complications
  • Know what documentation is needed to accurately report diabetic treatments
