Just Started a new job in the Home health care industry, would anyone have good resources for this particular coding?

It would, of course, depend on what services you're coding. For Home Health Agency (PPS), I'd go to Decision Health or AHIMA and CMS. They seem to be the only folks who pay any mind or effort to that leg of the industry. Ingenix has a few products, but not many.

For any Physician work in Home Health, look at CMS guidelines and payer-specifics. For the most part, the physician work is limited to E/Ms (and a few other "standard" services).

I'm not sure if this is the avenue you're asking about. I see your previous post, so I'm guessing you aren't involved in the agency side of things (PPS)...Good luck and pvt. message for a contact I have on the PPS side--might be able to suggest some specific texts.
