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 to twenty minutes every other Monday and to submit your favorite questions or comments for Coffee with the Coder®

In Episode 58, Paula Digby begins with a question from an Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility regarding the etiologic diagnosis, which has been resolved and then speaks to the IGC selection for a case that was initially other traumatic spinal cord dysfunction but the documentation did not support that. Another questioner asks about requesting a particular diagnosis code from the provider. The final question addresses the PCS code P05 and IUGR. 

Congratulations to today’s winner,  Angie in Kansas! This “mug shot” is Heather, the winner of Episode 39. Thank you for the questions!
