In Episode 75, Heather Bryans addresses a concern about exacerbated multiple sclerosis and then turns her attention to two IRF scenarios. In one case, the principle diagnosis for the UB-04 claim form (with 7th character) is the concern. In the other case, the etiologic diagnosis provided by the coder does not seem correct for the IRF-PAI. Congratulations to today’s winner, Rebecca! This sweet “mug shot” is Linda.   Dial in for the next Episode in two weeks beginning at 10:10 am Eastern (7:10 am Pacific)
