Genitourinary Code Changes
FY2017 brought more than 100 changes to Chapter 14 (Genitourinary System) in ICD-10-CM, with more than 60 new codes and dozens of revisions to existing codes. And that doesn’t include dozens of other revisions to codes and guidance elsewhere in the code set that have impacted genitourinary coding. While some changes merely attempted to clean up terminology, others were more significant. Find out how to look up these codes using the Coding Center and where to find the official and expert guidance to properly assign and sequence them. - Recorded 24July17

When is — and isn’t — an “attention to” code appropriate? What situations necessitate the use of a different term when querying the Alphabetic Index to code a patient’s “status”? When should personal and family history codes be used? We’ll walk through some common situations when these questions arise and show you how to use the Coding Center to find and assign these codes. - Recorded 23August17

Complications of Care
A complication is a condition that is interrupting the healing of the initial injury or illness. Complication codes can be found not only in Chapter 19 — Injury, Poisoning and Certain Other Consequences of External Causes — but in the chapters covering the respective body systems involved. Discover how to pinpoint the appropriate complications of care code on the Coding Center as well as the guidance to help you assign that code correctly. – Recorded 26Sept17
