Change is the name of the coding game. New codes, new tabular list changes, new guidelines and new Coding Clinic interpretations, plus new home health payment changes require us to stay ahead of the game. Increase your knowledge and understanding and gain the expertise your agency needs to survive in this comprehensive two-day intermediate to advanced coding course specific for home care coders.
Increase your understanding of the regulatory aspects and ethics of diagnosis coding and utilize lots of examples to increase your skills, proficiency, speed and accuracy in choosing the appropriate ICD-10-CM codes.
Attendees will be able to demonstrate proficiency in complex coding scenarios and be ready to tackle home care charts with confidence. We will apply Prospective Payment System reform, known as PDGM, to scenarios so that home health participants will understand payment implications and compliance issues. With government auditors targeting home care, now is the time to ensure that you are coding correctly and protecting your revenue.
You MUST have a Current 2020 or 2021 ICD-10-CM Coding Manual for this Virtual Workshop
The most current version of ICD-10-CM coding manual is available through Selman-Holman at https://selmanholmanassociateswebstore.mybigcommerce.com/2020-complete-home-health-icd-10-cm-diagnosis-coding-manual/ (follow the links to the bookstore; discount provided in cart) or by calling 214-550-1477 ext. 7 to ensure you receive the 2021 version.
This class is designed with intermediate coders in mind. We recommend a review of the ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting for 2020, pages 1 -20 of the document found at:
prior to the workshop.
These pages describe and define the Coding Conventions (Section I.A) & General Coding Guidelines (Section I.B). It is expected that intermediate coders already possess this foundational knowledge as it will not be the focus of this class. Your pre-class efforts will greatly enhance your learning experience.
