ICD-10 Coding for Eyecare Oct 1 2015 125 Questions

Use whatever method you’ve chosen to select codes:

  1. Cheat sheet
  2. Lookup program (Practice Management, ERM, or third-party)
  3. Coding from the manual.

Of course coding from the manual is the only way to ensure accurate, specific, and compliant coding. These questions will help you identify GAPS in your current knowledge and coding system and whether you may need additional training. After entering your codes on Thursday and Friday you might want to scan this list for codes used less frequently. The top 20% are easy. It’s best to become familiar with the less common codes before you have a busy day and then a half-dozen conditions you’ve never coded before. In addition there are bunch of exceptions and “gotcha’s” as I called them in ICD-10. Most took many months of study to find.

The answer key is available to all ICD-10 and Site License subscribers. The ICD-10 training will be updated several times with carrier-specific feedback and is good for one year from purchase.

Articles posted on the EyeCodingForum.com include definitions of mild, moderate and severe glaucoma stages, low and high risk glaucoma, the updated definition of “active treatment” for the “A” extender code, and much more.
