Industry Webinar: ICD-10 Unspecified Codes

ICD-10 Unspecified Codes
September 14, 2016  – 12:00 PM ET
Register

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.

This quarter’s presentation, Bayesian Inference in Programme Evaluation, will be presented by Dr. Elliot Meador, SRUC.

For those, like me, that may not be familiar with this topic, here is a quick description:  Bayesian statistics is a particular approach to applying probability to statistical problems. It provides us with mathematical tools to update our beliefs about random events in light of seeing new data or evidence about those events.  In particular Bayesian inference interprets probability as a measure of believability or confidence that an individual may possess about the occurrence of a particular event.
