Course Description

ICD-10 is the first full replacement of medical diagnosis coding in 30 years, has 160,000 codes. This is a huge increase from the 17,000 codes of ICD-9. Because of this, there is no automatic 1-to-1 mapping system for codes. Some codes will only have one accurate option under the new system, but most will have multiple options.

General predictions regarding the switch over predict coding productivity to decline by 10-15%, and increased problems with insurance claims, including not only an increase in processing time, but also an increase in denials.

This brief class will give you the midwifery-specific basics regarding ICD-10, so that your practice can head these problems off at the pass.
