Thread: ED Coding ICD-9

    Default ED Coding ICD-9

    Promo: Code Books
    Hi,

    I was hoping someone could help me. I am looking for a webinar course for ICD-9 coding for the ED. I found one at Coding Metrix but they have discontinued that one. Has anyone on here taken or ran across one of these lately. I am having difficulty in finding much of anything to do with ED, how do you keep if your CEU's for the CEDC?

    Thanks

    Default ICD Coding for ED

    The CEDC curriculum on this site has a module on ICD-9 coding. There are consultants out there like Todd Thomas and Caral Edelberg who do trianing which includes ICD-9 coding.
    But ICD-9 coding for the ED is pretty much based on the ICD-9 guidelines like all diagnostic coding. If there is a big difference it is that sometimes there is not an adequate final DX in the ED so signs and symptoms are often used. And of course E coding is common.

    Also now it is looking for 4 E codes with each account: Place of occurance; injury code; activity doing during the injury; and if it was working - making money - or recreational.
