Each year the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approves updates to the ICD-10-CM of diagnosis codes to become effective for medical claims beginning on October 1st. The changes must be implemented by all medical providers in order to have medical claims submitted and reimbursed in a timely manner. This webinar will highlight the 2021 changes to ICD-10-CM for attendees.

Why Should You Attend:

The ICD-10-CM codes on medical claim forms describe the medical necessity of the procedure or service being billed by identifying the condition or injury the patient has in order to validate the need. The ICD-10-CM code(s) are required for processing of all medical claims. This webinar will review the additions, revisions and deletions for 2021 so that attendees can implement these changes appropriately to meet the insurance carrier requirements and policies for medical necessity.

The changes to ICD-10-CM affect proper coding and reimbursement of medical claims to providers. Are you ready for the 2021 changes? Can you implement them appropriately? Do you understand the official coding guidelines, and when they apply? Do you want to avoid claim denials that cause additional staff time for corrections?
