Commonly Used Z Codes
Z codes have the same general intent as the old V codes in ICD-9: report issues other than a diagnosis that impact a patient’s health status and/or explain contact with health services. But when should you use these codes? Learn more about the whens and whys of Z code use, and how to use the Coding Center to find and sequence these codes correctly. – Recorded 28June16

Coding Clinic has said any condition listed under a subterm “with” in the Alphabetic Index should be interpreted as linked to the main term when both conditions are present. Discover how the new assumed relationships impact your code lookup & assignment using the Coding Center, including where to find the official guidance expected to be included in the FY2017 Guidelines. – Recorded 27Sept16

Vision & Hearing
The FY2017 ICD-10-CM code changes include 100 additions/revisions to Chapter 7 (Eye and Adnexa) – and that doesn’t include the hundreds of new diabetes codes for ophthalmic manifestations. Chapter 8 (Ear and Mastoid Process) has fewer changes, but you will find more options for contralateral hearing issues. Learn how to use the Coding Center to find, among others, the appropriate glaucoma, blindness and hearing loss codes – both old and new. – Recorded 27Oct16
