Hospice coding can be a complex, frustrating topic. Ensure new and seasoned coders alike feel confident in their work with this innovative series. The programs will dive into coding guidelines, primary/terminal diagnosis, secondary/comorbid diagnoses, and disease-specific criteria, and detail how to put these interconnected pieces together. Case study analyses and real-life examples will be used to demonstrate accurate hospice coding.
Part 1 will set the groundwork by examining hospice coding conventions and guidelines. This webinar will focus on how to accurately code the primary/terminal diagnosis and secondary or comorbid diagnoses. Participants will learn the importance of obtaining thorough referral information, coding all the patient's coexisting diagnoses (both related and unrelated to the terminal prognosis), confirming the diagnosis with a physician, and ensuring supportive clinician documentation.
After establishing a coding foundation, Part 2 will delve into common hospice diagnoses and disease-specific criteria. Discover how to accurately apply the coding conventions and guidelines. Participants will learn to recognize criteria for a decline in clinical status and comorbidities as they relate to ICD-10 coding and how to look up codes and guidelines.
The third and final webinar in this series will collect and connect all the pieces of hospice coding. It will review various coding scenarios and discuss rationales used. Participants will be more confident in their coding skills after reviewing case study analyses of realistic coding scenarios. Take this opportunity to unlock the key elements and knowledge needed to achieve accurate hospice coding!
