Take a deep dive into OASIS issues that impact your coding. With the move to OASIS-D officially in place, a new payment model and more OASIS changes expected in the coming years, it’s now more important than ever to get a handle on how OASIS and coding intersect. Learn how to accurately answer key OASIS items and understand where OASIS-D and coding rules don’t align, including nuances regarding ulcers treated with skin grafts or muscle flaps.
TOOL: Ulcer coding tool
This track is intended for coders who have been coding in home health for at least 1 year and either plan to sit for their HCS-D credential while onsite or who became credentialed in the past year. This track is also appropriate for those coders who completed the Coding Basics Preconference.
Two common home health diagnoses — myocardial infarction (MI) and heart failure — saw big changes in the FY2018 ICD-10 update in the form of new codes and new guidelines. Learn how and when to assign the standard code for an MI, and the five types of MIs along with nine codes for various kinds of heart failure. Also, you’ll get a primer on the proper coding of CVAs and sequelae., and secondary hypertension.
