Welcome to Coffee with the Coder®, our conversation with Paula Digby and her team to address issues, observations and questions for Health Information Management professionals, physicians, auditors, payors and students. You are invited to listen in for ten minutes every other Monday and to submit your favorite questions or comments for Coffee with the Coder®

Today Heather Bryans and Paula Digby address questions about IGC selection for spina bifida in the inpatient rehab; a multi-faceted question regarding the timing of querying; and an outpatient question about which diagnoses to report for procedures only.
