Medicare’s hospice ICD-10 coding focus started slow, giving some agencies the impression that such diagnosis coding scrutiny would blow over once hospices reimbursed pharmacies for specific drug classes billed to Medicare Part D. Instead, the storm is stalled over hospice, spreading its impact over all services to hospice patients and requiring hospices to list every condition present in hospice patients on hospice claims and care plans. At the eye of the storm is ICD-10 diagnosis coding. Join Beth Noyce, RN, HCS-H, HCS-D, COS-C, BSJMC, to study current ICD-10 coding rules as they apply specifically to hospice providers. Potential pitfalls abound. Learn to avoid or navigate safely such barriers to hospice ICD-10 diagnosis coding success.

Objectives:

  • Assess hospice agency ICD-10 coding for compliance
  • Implement QAPI plans to correct discovered deficiencies
  • Teach hospice-specific ICD-10 diagnosis coding requirements
  • Discuss consequences of non-adherence to CMS' hospice-specific and general ICD-10 rules

Attendees can submit a scenario to jhaggerty@pahomecare.org in advance to be discussed in detail during the webinar.

Upon completion of the workshop, attendees will receive 1.5 nursing CEs.
