The Truth about Z Codes    1 clock hour(s)
Description -  The International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) contains an often misunderstood section of codes that offers ways to code situations that do not represent medical conditions or injuries called Z codes. Many times patients require medical care for circumstances other than medical conditions or injuries such as follow up care, observation, and screening. These circumstances represent valid needs for medical care so it is important to learn to recognize them and assign Z codes accurately. Z codes also play an important role in healthcare statistics when ICD-10-CM data are studied for healthcare spending and medical research. Because of the importance of Z code messages, it is crucial to learn to recognize occasions to assign Z codes and to sequence them according to the ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting. The specific topics covered in this course are Z codes in general, sequencing guidelines, Follow-up, History, Observation, and Screening Z codes.
