Here we go again: Attachment D -- revised.

Just when you've finished your staff training on OASIS, you now need to prepare for a curveball. CMS published an Attachment D revision in December 2008 that will force your home health agency to make major process changes and another round of significant staff education.Get the lowdown on exactly what the Attachment D revision means for your agency -- and how it changes when you can assign diagnoses in MO230, MO240 and MO246. Join our home health expert, Tricia Twombly, for this interactive audio session, and walk away with all the inside information on this substantial revision.

Topics covered:

  • Find out why CMS reissued Attachment D -- plus, review Attachment D's original purpose.
  • Get guidelines for completing MO246 and what criteria constitute an assignable co-morbidity.
  • What you and your staff need to do to make the necessary process changes.
  • Discover OASIS integrity as it relates to your coding.
  • Gain a solid understanding of the criteria for diagnoses selection.
