Workshop Description:

Change is the name of the coding game and CMS never disappoints, with 615 code changes.  Stay ahead of the game by continuing to increase your knowledge in this comprehensive 2-day intermediate coding course specific for home care coders.

We will apply the chapter specific guidelines in each applicable chapter and use 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 also apply OASIS-C2 and OASIS-D/ICD-10-CM coding data items and PPS changes 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.
