Crawfish 'n' Coding
Buckle Down with ICD-9 and Saddle Up for ICD-10
On a daily basis, home health agencies face numerous coding challenges while diligently trying to achieve an accurate and flawless OASIS. Their countless efforts, in the end, will hopefully provide exceptional patient care, avoid denials and survive audits.
In a little more than a year from now, home health agencies will completely switch gears from ICD-9 to ICD-10 coding. This will be a significant change for us because ICD-10 has major structural changes. But, while we are all eagerly anticipating and preparing for ICD-10, there are still many episodes that will rely on accurate ICD-9 codes. Additionally, intermediaries and auditors are focusing on documentation that supports medical necessity. In the end, your documentation will determine your agency’s survival of an unexpected audit. Don’t be caught in a net like a crawfish with inaccurate and/or incomplete documentation, wishing you had the right tools to escape entrapment.
Join Jennifer and other experts at PPS Software, as they provide an informative, fun-filled day discussing ICD-9, preparing for ICD-10 and exploring ways to improve documentation that will please even the most critical surveyors.
After the workshop, venture to the PPS Plus headquarters for the 13th Annual Crawfish Boil. You’ll enjoy fresh crawfish from the Gulf as well as the excitement of an entertaining DJ! Scooter the DJ is a professional entertainer from sunny Orlando, Fla. He has performed for over 20 years and has provided top-quality entertainment to thousands of partygoers from all over the world. Join PPS Plus, other home health professionals and Scooter the DJ for a fun-filled evening of music and mudbugs!
