Health care providers will need to be knowledgeable with these changes since there is no grace period for using the new codes and continued use of codes that have been changed or deleted will result in rejection of claims and delays in reimbursement for services provided.
Home health and hospice organizations have worked hard to implement the ICD-10 codes list, but as in the years under the ICD-9 data, it is imperative to stay current with changes in the data set.
Why Should You Attend:
Do not leave correct coding to chance and uncertainty. With the ongoing limitations on reimbursement for home health and hospice care, no agency can afford to have their claim rejected and unreimbursed.
Avoid the fear and financial penalties of using incorrect codes and prepare for the changes in advance of the 10/1/16 implementation date. Dedicating 90 minutes of your time now to learn what is changing and how you can prepare for these changes and avoid denied claims and hours of staff time to correct errors is a small investment for the potential loss of payment associated with even one denied claim.
