Welcome to part six of our ICD-10-CM, Explained series.

Because of the questions we get asked of us during our webinars or in response to our written work, we’ve spent countless time reading (and re-reading) guidelines and best practices to help ensure our community maintains billing compliance. Providing answers is just something we love to do.

But with the unpredictability and constant flow of new regulations (not to mention preparing for the 2021 E/M changes) it can, at times, be a little overwhelming. Especially when our regular work begins to pile up.

But in the spirit of answering your questions and guiding you through the best practices we ourselves have identified and use, we created our “ICD-10-CM, Explained” series, where we aim to quickly and clearly explain the ICD-10-CM Coding Guidelines in plain english and through real-world examples. In our previous bundle of ICD-10-CM Explained, we covered:

  • 1.C.15 Pregnancy, Childbirth and Puerperium by Vikas Chawla
  • 1.C.16 & 17 Conditions Originating in the Perinatal Period and Congenital Malformations by Vipin Bhardwaj
  • 1C.18. Symptoms, Signs, and Abnormal Clinical/Laboratory Findings by Vipin Bhardwaj

This time around, we’ve got three brand new sections for you to explore and learn, which include:

  • ICD-10 Reminder Series: Section 19: Injury, Poisoning, and Certain Other Consequences of External Causes: Part 1, by Nafheem Ameen
  • ICD-10 Reminder Series: Section 19: Injury, Poisoning, and Certain Other Consequences of External Causes: Part 2, by Vikas Chawla
  • ICD-10 Reminder Series: Section 20: External Causes of Morbidity, by Laura Brink
