Gender dysphoria is quickly moving into America’s healthcare lexicon as LGBTQ+ families are rising in number at historic rates, prompting the emergence of alternative medical clinics that are providing services for the transgender patient community. As a result, coders have questions – specifically, about ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes.
During this edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, nationally recognized professional physician coder and auditor Terry Fletcher explains what codes to choose, how to understand them, and how to apply them to this new population of patient encounters.
