Come October 1, home health coders will have hundreds of ICD-10-CM code changes to adapt to.

Before the first update to ICD-10, the code set had been frozen for five years. Since regular updates have resumed, a virtual flood of changes has been unleashed, and with it serious implications for home health coders. This year’s update includes areas of great importance to home health, such as pressure-induced deep tissue injuries and atrial fibrillation.

Coders need to be informed of FY2020’s new, deleted, and revised codes to make sure that come October, they can appropriately capture patients’ conditions, stay in compliance, and ensure their agency gets all its rightful reimbursement.

Learn how these updates will impact the home health coding environment so you can start preparing now!
