2017 ICD-10 Changes and Updates CEU Course
The 2017 ICD-10 Updates & Changes online course will provide a detailed, up-to-date overview of the ICD-10-CM coding changes for 2017. This course is extremely important as these guidelines and updates affect your practice reimbursement if you are not aware and prepared. The basic course outline is below.
- ICD-10-CM overview
- General reporting guideline changes for 2017
- ICD-10-CM updates for 2017
ICD-10-CM Overview: This section of the course goes over the ICD-10 manual as well as the codes within it. Next, you will get a brief history of the international classification of disease (ICD) for some background knowledge of the code set. Also, this will help you when you go over the structural and organizational changes between ICD-9 and ICD-10. Additionally, the course goes over how to find the new codes in the ICD-10 book.
General Reporting Guideline Changes for 2017: Second, this section focuses on all of the reporting areas with changes for 2017. These changes are important to understand for the next year, for if they are not put into place, your practice is at risk for lower reimbursements.
ICD-10-CM Updates: Finally, this section will go over the updates for the ICD-10 code set in 2017. The transition to ICD-10 created a code freeze that has been lifted for 2017. The extended code freeze delayed new codes and changes/revisions that have now been included in the 2017 code books. Also, this program will cover the areas of change by category, so it is important that you have the 2017 book to capture this new information that may be pertinent to your claims.
