The list of new, revised and deleted ICD-10-CM codes was released in June for implementation from October 1, 2017. 360 new codes, 142 deleted codes and 226 revised codes were released on June 13, 2017. Since diagnosis coding changes are significant for approval of claims for home health and hospice services, agencies need to know about any changes as soon as possible to determine how they will impact services to their patients.
Join this session with expert speaker Judy Adams to get an overview of the several topics of special interest to home health and hospice agencies. Judy will offer you a first-hand opportunity to learn about what is changing. This session is a necessity for all clinical and coding staff to advance their coding knowledge and to avoid coding errors in the new fiscal year.
