Coding Down Syndrome and Related Chromosomal Abnormalities for Risk Adjustment

Chromosomal abnormalities have subtle distinguishing characteristics that require special considerations like these when coding.

When coding for Down syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities, it is essential that coders have an in-depth understanding of the variations of the conditions and related comorbidities. As expected, proper coding of chromosomal abnormalities requires extremely specific documentation from the provider and a high attention to the often minute differences between each condition on the part of the coder.
