Detailed knowledge of clinical criteria and documentation needs is imperative for properly reporting diabetes diagnoses and procedures. The complexity of diabetes, frequent holes in documentation, and overall lack of clinical criteria knowledge all make the coder’s job more difficult. Combine that with the frequent changes and updates in ICD-10, and diabetes reporting creates an environment ripe for denials.

Join expert speakers Nena Scott, MSEd, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P, CCDS, and Pam Hess, MA, RHIA, CDIP, CCS, CPC, for this 90-minute webinar as they discuss the recent ICD-10-CM/PCS coding changes and challenges for reporting diabetes. The speakers will explain best practices for clinical documentation of diabetic conditions, present pertinent coding and documentation guidelines, and identify 2018 ICD-10-CM/PCS changes for associated diabetic conditions.
