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

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 session 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

 

Date:            July 22, 2022                                                                       

         

Time:           9:00 to 12:00                        

                   

Location:     Online only. Link will be emailed to registrants one day prior to event.

3 hour CEU will be available for certified coding or mgt

**This series of courses is open only to participating MetroCare Physicians members and their staff.
