In order to accurately capture patient conditions through coding, home health coders need to stay up to date with FY2022’s new, deleted, and revised codes. This year’s ICD-10 code update proposes 153 new codes including one that will be particularly helpful to home health coders — F32.A (Depression, unspecified).
