According to the American Heart Association, the total number of inpatient cardiovascular operations and procedures increased 28% between 2000 and 2010, from 5.94 million to 7.58 million.
That’s a lot of procedures to code.
But if you fully understand the structure of the heart, it will help you code better and more accurately.
In addition, with the one-year grace period from last year’s introduction of ICD-10 ending October 1, you’ll have to begin coding with more specificity and become accustomed to many new codes.
You don’t want to have your claims denied because you did not provide a specific enough code.
If you’re not current with the Cardiac Catheterization Coding Guidelines or you’re still struggling to learn the new codes, our timing couldn’t be better.
Now is the right time.
