Product Overview

A practical approach to utilizing the ICD-10-CM diagnosis for pediatric feeding disorder. Defined as impaired oral intake that is not age-appropriate, and is associated with medical, nutritional, feeding skill, and/or psychosocial dysfunction, pediatric feeding disorder (PFD) is estimated to affect more than 1 in 37 children under the age of 5 years in the United States. These children experience significant feeding activity limitations and mealtime participation restrictions, which often are not captured by existing diagnostic codes. The next edition of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) will contain an ICD code for PFD. This session will prepare the clinician for appropriate utilization of the PFD diagnosis and the ICD code in practice. Case studies will be used to bridge the gap between system change and clinical application by sharing recommendations for documentation and reimbursement requests. Additionally, a PFD toolkit will be provided to ensure clinicians have resources to change practice in their unique treatment settings
