Product Description

The 2011 PPS Final Rule just added another level of complexity to therapy coding for home health. Getting it right is critical.

Coding therapy in home health has always challenging. But now, the 2011 PPS Final Rule and the increased emphasis on therapy make accurate coding absolutely vital to your agency's success.

Join home heath coding guru, Trish Twombly, BSN, RN, HCS-D, CHCE, for this hour-long focus where you'll get the information you need to code like a pro.

You'll learn how to identify and handle common challenges in coding therapy-specific assessments, and you'll take away a better understanding of appropriate diagnoses in the home health setting.

This seminar will include:

  • The PPS Final Rule - how it relates to therapy, and in turn, your coding practices.
  • Impairment vs. disability - how to code for each and why it's so important to know the difference.
  • Functional limitations - the importance of documenting them, and what a coder should look for in the therapist's documentation. 
  • OASIS data items - identify which ones support therapy coding.
  • Identifying therapy's impact on Home Health Resource Group (HHRG)
  • PLUS: Interactive scenarios to demonstrate accurate coding so you can put it to use in the real world.

Who should attend? Home health agency owners, administrators, directors and clinicians
