Deep Dive Into Diagnoses

These sessions will be converted to on demand soon!

This series is designed for the experienced coder to take a look at difficult diagnosis coding conundrums from each chapter of ICD-10-CM. Often, coders get bogged down with the day-to-day workload and don’t have opportunity to study more complex scenarios. This series will walk through guidelines, instructions and case studies for those complex concerns often placed on the desk of the more seasoned coder.
