ICD-10 Coding Guidance for Traumatic Brain Injury within the Military Health System
Nov. 12, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)
All programs covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act were mandated to transition to ICD-10 code sets as of Oct. 1, 2015. This transition accommodates dramatic changes in the practice of medicine and provides the flexibility to adapt as medicine changes. The new code set also provides a significant increase in the specificity of reporting, allowing more information to be conveyed in a code.
This webinar will address how the ICD-10-CM codes use seven alphanumeric characters to represent illnesses and conditions and present the commonly used codes for traumatic brain injury (TBI). Accurate ICD-10 coding is critical; proper coding provides a detailed clinical picture of a patient population, contributes to quality outcomes and standards of care, permits reimbursements for clinical services and prevents over- or under-billing for services. In addition, it permits oversight of population health within a military treatment facility, a region or the entire Military Health System (MHS) as well as helps anticipate demand for future TBI services.
At the conclusion of this webinar, MHS providers and coders will be able to:
- State the importance of proper coding
- Identify appropriate ICD-10-CM codes to use for TBI care
- Formulate ICD-10-CM codes correctly for TBI care
- Apply consistent ICD-10-CM codes among providers and facilities
