How to Effectively Manage Challenging Coding Scenarios In PDGM Webinar

Learn more about this event

With the implementation of the Patient Driven Groupings Model, Home Health has moved into a new era of reimbursement. Two of the five PDGM categories are directly linked to coding: Clinical Grouping and Comorbidity Adjustment.  PDGM requires Home Health Agencies to ensure that a patient is appropriate to be admitted to Home Health by having an acceptable primary diagnosis. What happens when the only diagnosis you have from the physician is an unaccepted diagnosis? What if the clinical record doesn’t align with the primary diagnosis? What about comorbidities? During this session, we will explore in depth the issues that can arise with ICD-10-CM coding under PDGM, primarily through case study analyses.  We will present detailed analyses of these issues and discuss action plans and best practices home health agencies can implement in order to effectively manage challenging coding scenarios in PDGM.
