Diabetes Coding and “With” Assumptions

The session will prepare you to tackle diabetes that is described as “poorly controlled” or “uncontrolled” and explain how to code diabetes with hyperglycemia. It will cover the rules of diabetes and “with” assumptions so you can avoid coding errors. It also include scenarios that help you understand diabetes combination codes and coding cases with multiple manifestations, plus codes for insulin use.
