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 62, Paula Digby tackles a question regarding a case in which the patient had Type 1 Diabetes prior to a transplant and then developed Type 2 Diabetes after the transplant. Another question involves a bit of concern between PPS and the coders in an IRF situation due the the physician’s documentation that a condition was “likely”. Then were anonymous questions related to therapy prior to plan of care and modifiers in the outpatient setting. Congratulations to today’s winner, Joyal in Michigan! This “mug shot” is Ron, the winner in Episode 52.   Dial in for the next Episode in two weeks beginning at 10:10 am Eastern (7:10 am Pacific)
