This one-day training provides a dynamic program for hospice coding training in ICD-10-CM with the latest updates on coding specifically for hospice agencies.
Start with an introduction to the ICD-10-CM code set, coding conventions, sequencing tips and chapter specific guidelines that cover all the chapters applicable to hospice patients. We will have plenty of practice accessing the index and locating codes, identifying tabular list instructions, and then on to coding hospice scenarios with common (and some not-so-common!) hospice diagnoses and conditions. We will also focus on the documentation needed to choose the most specific codes to describe the terminal illness and related diagnoses. Attendees will leave with the ability to identify key points in the plan of care documentation, query the physician as needed for more descriptive information, and find and sequence the diagnosis codes appropriate to hospice patients and their care.
*Prioritize diagnoses based on clinical assessment and planned interventions and explain hospice specific issues with coding.
*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 the musculoskeletal system, injuries and poisonings, including the optional use of V, W, X codes.
*Use the coding manual to find codes and sequence diagnoses for Hospice scenarios in ICD-10-CM.
