This reference guide will 1) demystify common myths about curanderismo by clarifying what it is/is not, 2) review benefits of knowing about curanderismo to improve communication between patient and provider; and 3) highlight some useful terminology for use with patients who practice forms of curanderismo.
Texas Billing and Coding Guide
This guide is designed to be a resource for programs providing HIV, STD and related services and to assist in the transition from ICD?9 to ICD?10 coding. It includes basic information about HIV and STD screening and testing, an overview of coding guidelines, and common ICD?9, ICD?10, and CPT codes. Several coding scenarios are included along with accompanying resources and references. While this is not an exhaustive list of codes for HIV, STD and related services and diagnoses, these common codes offer a quick reference to help improve coding efficiency. Always follow current legal guidelines and standards of practice when providing medical services.
Coding for HIV, STD and related services is an essential practice for programs that are preparing for billing third party payers. Beginning to properly code for services is a critical step in improving revenue cycle management and developing sustainable systems.
