All updated with 2021 coding changes and up-to-date info about PDGM! 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.
• Apply operational aspects of PDGM and the Medicare benefit, including discussion of the Face To Face requirement.
• Apply specific sequencing rules as required by the conventions and Official Coding Guidelines.
• Explain coding of diagnoses of infections, neoplasms, endocrine disorders such as diabetes, anemias, mental disorders, and the nervous system.
• Explain coding of diagnoses of cardiorespiratory illnesses, cerebrovascular disease and GI & GU disorders.
• Explain coding of diagnoses of the musculoskeletal system, injuries and poisonings, including the optional use of V, W, X and Y codes.
• Describe the purpose and appropriate use of Z codes.
• Use the coding manual to find codes and sequence diagnoses for home care and hospice scenarios in ICD-10-CM.
• Prioritize diagnoses based on clinical assessment and planned interventions.
Additional course information:
• 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 2021, pages 1 -20 of the document prior to the class. 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.
• MANDATORY: You will need to bring a current (2021) ICD-10-CM Coding Manual to the class. If you do not have a 2021 coding manual, you can purchase the book here.
