Education takes time and money.  But shouldn't travel be optional?

Join me in person or online for live workshops on both ICD-10 and OASIS-C2. Attend in person in South Jordan, Utah, or through virtual online streaming.

We're all speeding toward the ICD-10 update (Oct 1, 2016) and OASIS-C2 (Jan 1, 2017) implementations. Come with me (or virtually take me with you) for the next hospice and home health care update adventures.

ICD-10 and OASIS accuracy training half off. Don't wait. Educate.

October 1 everyone begins using the ICD-10 diagnosis coding updates, then January 1 home health switches to OASIS-C2. So much to learn.
No worries. I've got you covered.
Watch for my affordable OASIS-C2 and ICD-10 update webinars closer to the start dates. But remember the importance of documenting accurately in the meantime.
To help you prepare your staff for what's coming, I've made teaching and reviewing the basics more affordable than ever.

Call it a clearance sale, if you wish.

Got questions about ICD-10 diagnosis coding for hospice or home health?

Email your queries to the Association for Home Health Coding and Compliance (AHCC) at:, Subject Line: ICD-10 Workgroup question.

Until recently, diagnosis coders had no option but to request official diagnosis coding guidance and clarification from CMS' designated coding gurus at the American Hospital Association's (AHA) "Coding Clinic." But hospice and home health agencies report receiving conflicting and/or inapplicable guidance that could lead to payment delays or claim denials.

PeppersCatch and prevent improper payments with Medicare's Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER). Both home health and hospice agencies can access their reports through the PEPPER Portal.
These comparative billing reports summarize Medicare claims data to help agency Chief Executive Officers, Presidents, Administrators & Compliance Officers identify payment patterns at their own agencies and compare them with state, regional, and national reports.
