Get Updated with Nearly 600 Code Changes for 2021!

ICD-10-CM codes are the mainstay of a coder’s life. Getting updates on what is new for the upcoming year is so important to keep you informed and on top. This highly informative webinar on the new codes by Jill M. Young is not someone reading their slides telling you there is a new code set for substance abuse. Rather, she will explain that individuals who have substance abuse issues and stop using that substance may not be identified as having an addiction but rather are users who are stopping use and now are experiencing withdrawal issues. Or on the new Sickle Cell code sets. Jill won’t just say here are the new codes, Jill will explain that the new codes are for patients who although don’t have major complications are still in crisis. This difference in content and presentation style are what makes Jill’s webinars more engaging and informative.  You can listen and learn about codes in areas you don’t normally work in. You can learn new stuff and be the better coder for it. Listen in and see the difference.

Jill will go through the changes and new codes for 2021 for the ICD-10-CM book in an overview style. If you have specific questions, be sure to ask her at the end of her presentation.  Along with the webinar presentation, attendees will receive 

  • Location of the complete list of new codes additions and deletions
  • Location of code files broken down by Alpha and Tabular along with Neoplasm table codes

Webinar Objectives

Each year new diagnosis codes for ICD-10-CM are released and effective October 1st. These codes usually cover a great number of medical diseases and crisscross the medical specialties in what they address. Knowledge in an overview of these codes is important to everyone. The adage you don’t know what you don’t know is true when it comes to the new and changed diagnosis codes for the upcoming year. If you don’t know what they are, you don’t know if you would need to use them or not.  

Listening in to this fast passed overview of the new codes is important knowledge to keep your foundations of coding up to date and to keep your position as a know it coder.  Whether it’s changed to the chronic kidney disease area or new classifications to patients that have asthma, your practice may be treating the disease process as a primary or your specialty office may see that patient with the co-morbidity described in the new codes.  

Listen in, it won’t be boring!!
