Coding Clinic is a source of official, binding coding guidance. Yet, it is not publicly available to the people who need it the most: home health coders like yourself. Many of the Coding Clinic updates published throughout 2017 have a major impact on common home health diagnoses, including respiratory conditions such as COPD and diabetes.
