ICD-10 CM Code Updates Effective 10/1/19 (Home Health)
WEBINAR - August 21, 2019 - 3:00-4:30 p.m.


Coding is a core element of home health, yet it is very complex under ICD-10.

The FY2020 ICD-CM final code set includes 273 new, 30 revised and 21 deleted codes as well as 98 tabular instruction changes

This session will review the October 2019 coding updates. Changes and challenging coding areas will be reviewed.  In addition, key parts of coding under PDGM will be reviewed- as beginning January 2020 the PDGM Clinical Groupings will be a key factor in coding and will have enormous impact to your agency.
