In-Depth ICD-10 Coding and Documentation Advice for Orthopedics

After years of preparation, you’re finally using ICD-10 to report the diagnoses that your orthopedic physician documents in the written report — but maybe you’re finding that you’re still eyeing those unspecified codes. Let us help you zero in on what you need to know so you can report the most specific orthopedic diagnoses.

Learn how to Proceed with the New ICD-10 Diagnosis Codes for Orthopedics

The new ICD-10 coding system means more specificity when you’re coding. For example, for a fracture, ICD-10 will require a code that indicates what side the injury occurred on, what bones were injured, whether the fracture was open or closed, whether the fracture was displaced, and whether the visit was initial or subsequent. And for some open fractures, providers will have to go an extra step to document the Gustilo classification, so that codes have the appropriate 7th character extender.
