Workshop Description:
Change is the name of the coding game in 2019 and beyond. This course will include all the newest updates to coding for 2020, including new codes, new conventions, and new guidelines (October 1, 2019) all in a new payment system known as PDGM (January 1, 2020). 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.

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. Increased dependence on coding for payment means increased scrutiny from the government.

Attendees will be able to demonstrate proficiency in complex coding scenarios and be ready to tackle home care charts with confidence. We will apply PDGM concepts 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.

Attendees will also be able to: Identify compliance issues related to coding accuracy and Patient Driven Grouper Model. Identify new codes and guidelines effective October 1, 2019. Explain coding of infectious diseases, diabetes and circulatory conditions. Explain coding of respiratory conditions, injuries and complications. Explain coding of aftercare and other conditions.
