Increase your knowledge and understanding, and gain the expertise your agency needs to survive in this comprehensive two-day intermediate coding course specific for home care coders. All of the new coding changes have increased error probability. Lack of training leads to denials, up-coding, or down coding leading decreased cash flow. This class will be full of scenarios!
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. One of the many hot topics will be the Face-to-Face encounter, the primary diagnosis and the role of the coder.
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.
This course now includes what coders need to know about PDGM and a discussion of pertinent new proposed codes and guidelines for October 2020!
