ICD-10 National Provider Call

Dianne De La Mare

CMS is sponsoring an MLN Connects National Provider Call titled: Countdown to ICD-10 on August 27, 2015. Sue Bowman from the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and Nelly Leon-Chisen from the American Hospital Association (AHA) will present and discuss:

1) a national implementation update;
2) coding guidance;
3) how to get answers to coding questions;
4) claims that span the implementation date;
5) results from acknowledgement and end-to-end testing weeks; and
6) provider resources.

The targeted audience for the call is medical coders, physicians, physician office staff, nurses and other non-physician practitioners, provider billing staff, health records staff, vendors, educators, system maintainers, laboratories and all Medicare providers. As we’ve noted in the past, these CMS national calls often focus on hospitals and physicians, but there may be an opportunity for questions from the LTC profession.

 Further, AHIMA has a white paper posted on its website that is specific to LTC titled ICD-10-CMS Coding Guidance for Long Term Care Facilities.

To register for this call go to the MLN Connects Event Registration website. Space is limited.
