Cardiology Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

Our cardiology coders are wondering whether there is a resource related to ICD-10 coding specific to cardiology procedures. Can you provide any help with this?

Answer:

One possibility can be found at the following website where the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) provide a document entitled ICD-10 Clinical Concepts for Cardiology: https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Coding/ICD10/Downloads/ICD10ClinicalConceptsCardiology1.pdf. It includes codes for common procedures, clinical documentation tips, and clinical scenarios.
