CODING the BIG FOUR:
Diabetes, HTN, CKD, and Obesity

Lunchtime Webinar

Presented by: Karen Scott, MEd, RHIA, CCS-P, CPC, FAHIMA

The prevalence of these four diseases in our part of the country, and their interactions merit special attention for documentation and coding to demonstrate a realistic picture of the health of so many of our patients. These four diseases have far-reaching effects not only in the care of our patients, but in the quality performance and cost valuations in commercial and government payer contracts.

This condensed session for clinicians will discuss:

  • Proper use of combination codes for reporting these interactive issues, which drive cost expectations by the payers
  • Proper reporting of CPTII codes that can show treatment outcomes for quality
  • Proper reporting of ICD + CPTII for obesity diagnoses and the effects of chronic disease on BMI level when choosing an obesity vs morbid obesity diagnosis and reporting a diagnosis without a BMI
  • Specific questions regarding the number of combo codes you can report, reporting combo codes when all of these are present, how to report CPTII codes
