ICD-10 was implemented October 1, 2015. While relatively new in the scheme of coding paradigms, a lot has changed in the last 18 months. This webinar will review the 2,600-plus new, revised, and deleted codes, including the “with” major change, “A” character rules, excludes 1 and 2 rules, and more. Many of these changes require more information than before to code.
As hospices come under increased scrutiny from auditors and surveyors, coding accuracy is not just a guideline, but mandated by laws and regulations. The increased specificity and knowledge required for ICD-10 can be overwhelming. It is essential your agency is on top of ICD-10 coding.
