    Question LTC Diagnosis Coding

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have any suggestions about diagnosis coding for a nursing home? Are there any webinars on this? I have read the guidelines in the ICD-9 CM book, but have problems sometimes.

    If a resident has cancer and is receiving radiation but it is not the reason the resident is staying in the nursing home, do you still code the cancer diagnosis?
