Show Notes

There are a plethora of ICD-10 codes for sleep disorders – as many codes for these diagnoses as sheep jumping over a fence. And with the approach of summer, there is the concordant expectation of summer insomnia.

“Sleep is not just a pillar of health, it is the foundation to health,” writes Nick van Terheyden, aka “Dr. Nick the Incrementalist,” founder of Incremental Healthcare, who reports our lead story.

Dr. Nick discusses the importance of sleep, which he describes as offering “the incredible benefits of this amazing new treatment that allows you to live longer, improves your memory, makes you more creative and slimmer, (and) decreases (risk of) cancer, dementia, infections, heart disease, strokes, and diabetes.”

The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:

  • The Coding Report: Laurie Johnson report on ICD-10 coding for sleep disorders. Sleep disorders can be coded based on interruption in sleep patterns to substances that interrupt sleep. Johnson is a senior healthcare consultant at Revenue Cycle Solutions, LLC.  

  • Tuesday Focus: Inaccurate ICD-10 coding reported by Holly Louie, past president of the Healthcare Business and Management Association. Louie, who continues her exploration of this important subject, will also report on her recent meeting with officials at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
