Prior to January 1, only an unlisted code could describe a far-reaching peritoneoscopy involving biopsy(ies), washings, and resection of omentum and multiple regional lymph nodes. Now you have a new code to capture this type of procedure, which your surgeon might perform for patients with conditions such as ovarian, cervical, or prostate cancer.

That’s not all. When your general surgeon takes a case for gastro-intestinal surgery, you can’t afford to miss the diagnosis code that most accurately describes the condition — and ensures appropriate procedure pay. Because the surgeon or the referring clinician may describe symptoms that are the indication for surgery, you’ll need to be able to “decode” any narrative diagnoses you receive, and report the best ICD-10 code.

Although the changes may be a lot to learn, General Surgery Coding Alert will help you focus on how the revisions can actually streamline your coding.
