What new codes are coming your way? The ICD-10 Coordination and Maintenance Committee (C&M) met for two days this past week to discuss requests for ICD-10 code changes.

Laurie Johnson, an ICD10monitor editorial member and senior healthcare consultant for Revenue Cycle Solutions, LLC, reports on the public forum held Monday and Tuesday at the headquarters of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

This episode also features these other segments:

  • Tuesday Focus: Addicted Nation—Two major news stories this week underscored a nation whose citizens are caught in the grip of addiction: the tentative settlement agreement involving Purdue Pharma, makers of OxyContin, and the announcement that the federal government is considering a ban of flavors used in e-cigarettes in response to a surge in underage vaping. Six vaping deaths and some 450 possible cases of lung infection related to vaping have been reported nationwide. Nick van Terheyden, MD, AKA, “The Incrementalist,” returns to report on addiction and Laurie Johnson reports on coding issues surrounding vaping.

  • The Coding Report: Nationally recognized health information management (HIM) expert Gloryanne Bryant reports live from the national convention of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) on red flags in coding compliance.

  • News Desk: Timothy Powell, compliance expert, and ICD10monitor national correspondent anchors the Talk Ten Tuesdays News Desk.

  • TalkBack: Erica Remer, MD, FACEP, CCDS, founder and president of Erica Remer, MD, Inc., and Talk Ten Tuesdays co-host, reports on a timely subject that has captured her attention.
