ICD-10 coding can be confusing and is often misunderstood by nurses and other healthcare providers. This webinar is designed to help you understand the role of ICD-10 coding in financial reimbursement, research, and program sustainability.
Sexual assault programs are federally mandated to not charge victims for the medical forensic exam; however, ICD-10 coding will provide additional data for those services which can be used for future planning. Other forensic patients who are seen in hospitals, clinics, and agencies should also have accurate coding to provide improved reimbursement and also planning for future fiscal needs.
