Why should you order the ICD-10-CM Oncology Resources?

1. ICD-10-CM diagnosis coding guidelines require that multiple codes be reported to define not only the primary site of malignancy, but all secondary malignant sites, comorbidities and conditions treated during the course of therapy.

2. Many payor policies will no longer include “unspecified” cancer diagnosis codes as sufficient for reimbursement. Therefore, you must select a more specific diagnosis code that represents the patient’s medical condition(s).

3. Some Medicare contractors have already indicate that many Local Coverage Determinations will be retired, although services will continue be reimbursed based on medical necessity. As a result, physicians and other providers should make certain that all relevant and necessary ICD-10-CM codes are reported for each patient treated.

4. There is a potential for lost revenue with the implementation of ICD-10-CM and the increased documentation and code assignment requirements. This Resource will help ensure that all relevant codes are reported, illustrating the complexity of patient care and the quality of services provided
