AHA Coding Clinic for ICD-9-CM released its second round of ICD-10 coding guidance in its First Quarter 2013 issue. HCPro CDI Education Director Cheryl Ericson, MS, RN, CCDS, CDIP, says the guidance contains information regarding diagnosis clarification, but also instances in which a CDI specialist may be called upon to clarify a procedure. Other than debridement of pressure ulcers, procedures rarely need to be clarified in ICD-9, but this paradigm may be changing under ICD-10.
