ICD-10 CM Code Updates Effective 10/1/19 (Hospice)
WEBINAR - August 22, 2019 - 3:00-4:30 p.m.

Although the importance of coding in hospice took on such an important role about five years ago, many hospice agencies are still unsure about the coding guidelines for hospice. 

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

In this session will focus on a review the coding guidelines for hospice. In addition, we will also review the October 2019 coding updates, focusing on changes and challenging coding regulations.
