Breaking the Code: ICD-9-Clinical Modification Diagnosis Coding for Traumatic Brain Injury 
Aug. 14, 2014; 1-2:30 pm (EDT)

The Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) reports an increase in unspecified traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) in Defense Department numbers worldwide over the past two quarters. Special rules apply to coding brain injuries in the Defense Department. Appendix G of the Military Health System Coding Guidance: Professional Services and Specialty Coding Guidelines Version 3.6 contains rules that apply to coding brain injuries for both deployed and non-deployed settings. These rules take precedence over any other coding guidance. This webinar will examine these special rules to simplify the TBI coding process.
Continuing Education: Continuing education credit is available from Duke Medicine. You must register on or before Aug. 14, 2014, at 3 p.m. (EDT) to qualify for the receipt of continuing education credit
