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

Due to the importance of this topice,we are repeating this program that many were unable to attend in October. Those who attended at that time will not get a new certificate for this repeat.

The Endocrine system can be called the regulator due to its principal responsibility of providing a stable balance between interdependent elements of the human body through various hormones, thus making endocrine coding a necessary part of many specialties.

The ICD-10-CM and CPT-4 training session will include:

  • Chapter specific terminology with anatomy
  • Proper coding of conditions, disorders, and their complications
  • Review coding sequencing, rules, regulations and conventions
  • Stressing the importance of specificity in documentation and coding with identification

of co-morbidities that trigger HCCs (Hierarchical Condition Categories)

Please have your ICD-10-CM and CPT-4 manuals available for coding exercises.

You may submit your specific coding problems and questions to Donna Pendergrass at least a week ahead to be addressed by Karen during class. Please de-identify/remove any patient protected health information if you send clinic notes.
