Product Description

Try Your Hands At These Straight Psych Coding Tips -- And Watch Your Revenue Improve On All Fronts.


The presence of depression, dementia and other psychiatric conditions can make a difference in both the length of care and the types of services needed to address a home health patient’s needs even when a psychiatric nurse is not involved in the case. Accurate coding is important in home health to “paint the full picture” of the patient’s situation and receive the most appropriate reimbursement allowable.  

Register now for this educative session presented by expert speaker Judy Adams, RN, BSN, HCS-D, HCS-O,  and in just 60-minute she will review an array of psychiatric codes commonly seen with home health patients as well as demonstrate which codes contribute case mix points to the home health resource group that determines the amount of payment for the episode. Also, Judy will address how the diagnosis codes and OASIS items need to support one another.

Session Highlights:

  • Identify the two case mix diagnosis categories associated with psychiatric conditions and which codes are included in each.
  • Define key points related to coding psychiatric and mental health conditions.
  • Discuss the array of dementia, depression and cognitive symptom codes and how to select the most appropriate code for your patient situation.
  • Discuss why it is important to include and address psychiatric conditions within the home health plan of care.
  • How the OASIS items and diagnosis codes need to support one another.
