Welcome to excerpts of the Medical Coding Certification Webinar November 2012!

Special guest Ruth Sheets recently joined the Web team of CCO.org and joined us to share some of her experiences as a relatively new coder and how she successfully passed her first test.

Here’s a recap of most of the questions we covered:

– What is the diagnosis code assignment for contraction of the anterior capsule causing the intraocular lens implant to be displaced following extraction of a cataract?
– V-codes – in particular knowing WHEN we would need to add one
– Orthopedics – Casting & Strapping
– Coding for GERD
– Is there a rule of thumb to which code should be billed first if the ICD-9 does not state otherwise?
– Explaining the use of “Omit Code” in the ICD-9?
– Debridement and Skin Graft
– Hypertension & Chronic Kidney Disease
– CEU’s and the CPC
– Internet Search Tips for Coders
