Day to day coding has its own challenges, but occasionally tough coding scenarios present themselves. Seasoned coders are often expected to have all of the answers, but might not have the resources to be certain that their answers are correct. In this session, we’ll explore tough coding scenarios for infections and parasitic diseases found in Chapter 1 of ICD-10-CM. Proper reporting for HIV and sepsis, how to determine whether to report an infection by site or organism, and resistance to drugs will be key areas of focus.
