CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: 2/8/2008
During the latter part of 2007 and the beginning of this year, we have strived to keep our subscribers informed of all the procedure coding changes that routinely occur January 1 of each year. This week, we will discuss another set of codes, diagnosis codes, that also play an important role in claims submissions. Providers must be aware of the rules and conventions of both procedure and diagnosis codes to ensure compliance with the rules and regulations that govern federally-funded health plans. This week's CodeMap Compliance Briefing reviews the rules associated with diagnosis codes, commonly referred to as ICD-9 codes.
