Don’t Miss the Oct. 1 Deadline: New 2023 ICD-10-CM Codes

The new ICD-10-CM diagnosis code changes go into effect on October 1, 2022. You are required to master more than 1,400 code additions, changes, and deletions before they go live.

If you don’t correctly incorporate each of the new, modified, and deleted ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes for 2023, get ready for denied claims, delayed payments, and one huge headache. The updates impact nearly every specialty, covering injuries, diseases, and even external causes of injury. But you don’t have to go through this changeover alone…

This is where expert coder and educator ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Kim Huey, MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO, COC can help. During her 60-minute online training session, she will walk you through the ICD-10-CM diagnoses code changes for 2023 that will have the most impact on your practice next year. This training will help you ensure your transition to these new codes goes off without a hitch.

Here are just a few of the new ICD-10-CM diagnosis code update implementation strategies you’ll receive by attending this hour-long online training session:

  • Navigate new brain injury, concussion, and contusion codes (S06.- series)
  • Correctly code when a patient doesn’t comply with provider’s recommendations (Z91.1-)
  • Avoid catch-all unspecified codes and the claim denials that follow
  • Choose an accurate dementia diagnosis (5-F03.C4) from over 150+ new codes
  • Select the right injury code from the 300+ new options
  • Understand when to report the new overdose and underdosing codes (T43.-)
  • Identify how to report nearly 200 new endometriosis codes (N80-)
  • Differentiate the dozens of new aneurysm codes (I71.-)
  • Code the use of alcohol, marijuana, opioids, cocaine, inhalants, or other substances
  • Isolate the correct maternal care codes from the 200+ new choices (O35.-)
  • Find numerous new codes for lymphoma (C84.4)
  • And much more!

Ensuring you incorporate the new ICD-10-CM diagnosis code updates for 2023 correctly is more important than ever before. In the last few years, CMS has gone on a rampage to recoup reimbursements that they feel they’ve paid in error (equaling $25.03 BILLION for Medicare fee-for-services claims). And diagnosis coding errors can get you targeted and land you in serious financial and legal trouble unless you’re prepared.

Don’t wait, the Oct. 1st deadline is just around the corner. Sign up for Kim’s upcoming online training session today!
