In-Depth ICD-10 Coding and Documentation Advice for Otolaryngology Practices

Are you sure you’re ready for ICD-10?

If you’re a provider you need to update your documentation to mirror the increased specificity in ICD-10 codes — what worked in ICD-9 may not cut it in ICD-10. You’ll need to capture co-morbidities, manifestations, etiology/causation, and complications to ensure accurate coding.

If you are a coder, you must know how to translate the clinical information from the encounter notes to one of the new codes. One incorrect character and your entire claim will be undermined.

As we are quickly nearing the time for ICD-10 transition, you’ll need to gear up on your know how of these codes. While you have more specific codes to report impacted cerumen based on laterality and tonsillitis based on acute vs. chronic and the infectious agent, you may not have to worry about other diagnoses. For instance, when it comes to your clinician diagnosing acute sinusitis, you have a simpler transition.

Warning: If your practice has not begun training, dual coding, or reviewing of encounter forms, then you need to catch up. Did you know payers may start using the conversion to ICD-10 as another way to squeeze more money out of the reimbursements your practice should receive?

That’s why you should use the brand new, one of a kind Otolaryngology ICD-10 Handbook. Get step-by-step, accurate, and authoritative guidance so you can learn about ICD-10 guidelines and GEMs, confront the training process, and get to know some of the documentation changes you need to start implementing now.
