September 2016 Webinar: ICD-10 Unspecified Codes

Click here to download/view the presentation slides.

Welcome to the Azalea Health Industry Webinar Series, dedicated to helping you successfully navigate the healthcare industry. When ICD-10 codes became mandatory in 2015, physicians were granted amnesty from Medicare and most commercial payers.  This grace period will officially end on October 1, 2016.  After this date, providers will be subjected to post payment reviews and denials if claims are submitted with unspecified codes. This webinar will provide an in-depth look at how the lifting of the grace period will affect your practice and its reimbursement, as well as best practices moving forward.

During this webinar, attendees will learn how to identify unspecified ICD-10 codes currently being used in their software and how to prepare from a billing & coding viewpoint and clinical documentation perspective.

If you have any questions or for more information, contact Azalea Health at Info@Azaleahealth.com or 877-777-7686.
