Welcome to October 1, 2020: ICD-10-CM/PCS Updates: It is that time of year again. It is the time where CMS unleashed hundreds of new codes, revisions, and deletions. CMS is releasing the largest amount of new codes since the implementation of ICD-10-CM. Will you be ready? Come and join us for this special event webinar. In this webinar we will review the 490 new codes, 58 invalidated codes and 47 revisions.
We will cover the 2021 ICD-10-CM Official Coding Guidelines. Some of the guidelines we will be covering will include the update to COVID-19, social determinants, vaping and much more.
CMS has several new MS-DRGS as well as deletion of some MS-DRGs and this year we will continue to see the shifts in multiple MS-DRGs. We cannot leave PCS out. 2021 will bring in 544 new codes and 2 new coding guidelines. This will take the number of PCS codes from 77,559 to 78,103. Yes, PCS continues to grow by leaps and bounds but we will help you to tame the PCS beast.
We look forward to seeing you at this live update and if you are unable to make the live event, we will record for playback.
